Farmhouse Storage Bed with Geometric Pattern

Submitted by dmcarwin on Fri, 07/10/2015 - 10:15

I have always loved Ana's Farmhouse bed, so when she came out with the Farmhouse bed with storage drawers I knew it was the perfect solution for our small master bedroom. Ana's plans were awesome and made this an easy build. I wanted my bed to be a little unique so I tried a geometric pattern for the head board and foot board and I LOVE it! I also decided to make my slats removable for easy access to under the bed storage and this is one of my favorite features of the bed! I think my husband and I just found a new spot for hiding christmas presents! :) Check out my blog post for all the details and loads of photos!

Estimated Cost
I am thinking around $300 for the bed with materials and stain and poly.
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Basic Pine, and plywood
Finish Used
I used Minwax pre wood conditioner and Mixwax Jacobean for the main bed and drawers. For the geometric inlay I used Minwax Natural Stain. I also did there coats of poly sanding with 400 grit in-between coats for a nice smooth finish.
