Farmhouse Bed, Workbench Console Nightstands

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 10/29/2016 - 11:31

Made the bed from wood that I got from the place I work.  It was weathered and rotting.  I was able to work around the rot.  I had to play with the finish to get it all of the bed pieces to match. The bed is really heavy because the wood was full 2" material. The smaller picture shows the actual color of the bed more accurately.

I love the workbench console plans so made them smaller to work as nightstands.

Decided to try and make lamps out of some firewood.  They worked for what I wanted.
