Farmhouse queensized bed

Submitted by SteveS86 on Thu, 06/30/2016 - 19:12

I built this bed step by step from the Mom's fancy farmhouse bed - queen sized. I have no experience of building things before this, but bought a miter saw and nail gun. Banged it out in a weekend. More time was spent painting than assembly. I reused the slats from my old IKEA bed. In hindsight, I wish I had a way to even the boards better before assembly, like a planer.
