Hailey Platform Bed

Since we moved 2 months ago, our bed has been a mattress on the floor. Being busy with other projects needed to make the house more liveable, I kept putting off this one until I just couldn't stand it any more.
So I spent the weekend getting over the fear of the people at my local lumbar supply store (the guys aren't always very nice, but I lucked out and got one of the ladies to help), buying the materials and building the bed. It took a good solid weekend. But by Sunday night, no more sleeping on the floor.
Finished with minwax ebony stain and lemon oil (my cats hate it, keeps them from clawing the pine to shreds)
Now hopefully I can get to the headboard...at least once all my kitchen cupboards have doors, haha.

Hey! Looks great, did you end up putting in the slats or does the mattress/boxspring not need the extra support? I am going to try and tackle this project sometime this week.
