Chestwick Platform Bed (King)

Submitted by ebfaulk on Fri, 04/27/2012 - 18:02

I took the plans from the Chestwick platform bed and headboard and built it using King size bed dimensions. For the box of the bed, I used 2 x 12's instead of 2x8's. It seemed more substantial for a king bed, and this way, I didn't need to use a box spring.

I want to stain something that color just because it's called "Gunstock." This is such a neat bed, looks good with the heavier bottom, especially on a king size bed.
