Farmhouse King Bed

Submitted by nguim21 on Thu, 06/09/2011 - 20:19

I have been dreaming of building a bed since I found Ana's website over a year ago. I bought the wood in January and slowly worked on it over 3 months, mainly because I was uncertain that I could actually do it myself! After spending about 3 hours in a row to finish it, it is finally complete! I am so happy with how it turned out and friends of mine cannot believe that I did this BY MYSELF!

When you say "poly", did you use a polyurethane or a polyacrylic? I am having trouble deciding what to do on the farmhouse headboard we just made!
