$40 Farmhouse Bed

We had been using my wife's great grandmother's bedroom set for years. It has become increasingly noisy and we were in the mood to change the style of our bed. Recently I had picked up 5-6 pallets to use and I befriended the manager of a sawmill. He let take scrap would from his burn pile and gave me 5 10-12 foot boards that were going to be also thrown out due to various problems. All the wood was pine and the only thing I had to purchase was wood filler, nails, screws, and stain. I used 2-2x4s instead of 4x4s and my bed frame was built with 1x6s, 5s, 7s. I just used what I had left over from the rest of my planks.
