Farmhouse bed, King

Submitted by JennyG on Fri, 07/01/2011 - 13:05

We raised the headboard about 6 inches from the plan and modified the size to king. (sidenote: did you know that California King is actually narrower and longer than a standard king? I always assumed it was the widest bed on the market.)To cover the "seam" of the 2x4s on the posts, we added crown molding. Slats are tongue and groove instead of 2x4s.

did you put a groove with a router on the edges of your panels on the head and foot board? If so which one.
