i love the farmhouse look and decided to start changing the furniture in my bedroom. I went shopping and everything I liked was very expensive. I looked online and found DIY plans on Ana’s website. They were an awesome start. I tweaked a few things and absolutely love the end product. 
 

I decided to buy a metal frame and put the mattress on plywood. It’s as solid as a rock!!

Estimated Cost
500.00
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Knotty Alder and cedar 4x4’s
Finish Used
I did one coat of Danish Oil in dark walnut. If you have never used Danish Oil....I highly recommend that you try it. I applied the oil with a foam paint brush and wiped off the excess with an old pillow case. It took about 2 weeks for the smell to lighten up.


The knotty alder is beautiful wood. It sands nice and stains easy.
Recommended Skill Level
