Cherry Farmhouse Bed

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 12/28/2016 - 14:24

This is our third bed built from Ana White plans. My husband has built the loft bed and a daybed. This is by far our favorite. When my dad cleared his farm 18 years ago, he milled all of the lumber and it has been sitting in a barn waiting for special projects. My husband cut down the large beams to make the post and my dad had some of the cherry boards milled into bead board, which we used in the headboard and footboard. I love the way it turned out and I hope my daughter cherishes it.
