I built this Auburn University themed platform bed for our son. It works perfectly for him, and he absolutely loves it. I added a custom "Tiger Eyes" wood logo, which makes this a one-of-a-kind bed.
The construction of the bed was straight-forward due to the great plans I found on this site. The finishing process actually took longer than the build!
I made a few minor tweaks to the plan, such as using a combination of dowels and wood screws on the frame joints, and using a router to put a 1/2" radius round-over edge on the platform boards, and a 5/32" Roman Ogee edge on the top plate of the headboard.
We used spray paint for the finishing process (Rust-Oleum Gloss Orange and Krylon Gloss Navy), followed with a few coats of Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane.
