Farmhouse bed

I followed the plans provided by Ana and boy am I delighted.  I changed up the color scheme based off a whim.      All the stained pieces or cordavan brown semi transparent from Home Depot and the wood is pine.     All the white is Douglas fir, (4x4, 2x4, 2x10) and I used a chalked white also from Home Depot. It was fairly easy, I just tweaked the dimension due to our bed height.   Great weekend project.  Beginner project to certain extent, turned into a intermediate based on tools used and certain finishes. 

 

Measurements were for a queen bed frame and tempurpedic adjustable bed frame (had to adjust post height to be taller,  adjust 2" shorter for standard Hollywood frame)

Estimated Cost
$225 based on more expensive finishes.
$120 ish in wood, paint and stain was about $60. Hardware cost the rest.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine, Douglas fir

Cordavan brown stain, chalked white paint
From Home Depot. Poly coat on top
