I built this bed for my daughter about 9 months ago and am just now getting around to posting it. I followed the plans exactly with the exception of adding a few more inches to the legs. I wanted LOTS of space under the bed for storage. I stained it with minwax weathered oak and gave it a coat of satin poly. I wanted a very natural look as my daughter is a no-frills kinda girl. We just love it! I actually want to build me and my husband a queen size version of this bed. Thanks for the great plans!
