Farm house bed

Found the plans on Ana’s website, not to hard to build and only ran about $200. Bed is made from white pine with the exception or the 4x4 post which are cedar because that’s all I could find that was untreated. I used an age excelerator instead of stain. It took me the weekend to build but I have 5 kids so there where lots of distractions. I added 5 inches to the height because my wife likes tall beds, and a 2x4 to the bottom of the headboard and footboard for added strength and I liked the way it looked. Get help moving head and foot boards around as they are heavy.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost

Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
White pine and cedar
Finish Used
Started sanding with 60 grit and finished with 120 to make it smooth and splinter free but with a little worn look. Then used an age excelerator which makes each board a little different but mostly grey. For some reason one side board turned out purple.
