Farmhouse King!

Submitted by Britt.E on Sat, 05/23/2015 - 19:25

I only recently stumbled upon and was amazed by all of the wonderful plans and tips here, not to mention the community. My wife and I had inherited a king size bed after my grandparents passed away. While we were both grateful, the bed was on a very basic metal frame that sat very low to the ground and was hard to get up out of. My wife had often talked of having a nicer bed to put our mattress and box spring on, So with great eagerness I set to work. I loved the classic look of this bed and was a bit saddened that there was no king-size plans available. I decided that wasn't going to deter me, so I set out to modify the plan to fit. After making a few adjustments and modifications, the bed really started to take shape. Needless to say, I am very pleased with the results! Thanks everyone, and thank you , Anna!
