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)
$120 ish in wood, paint and stain was about $60. Hardware cost the rest.
