I completed this project almost entirely by myself. I had a malfunction with the saw & needed assistance from my husband in the beginning, but borrowed a saw from a friend & completed the rest by myself. I made the platform bed one weekend & made the headboard another weekend. Fun project! And it turned out beautiful!! Thank you, Ana White for your awesome plans on your website!!!
Unsure, I had most of the wood already.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
I preconditioned my wood with Minwax pre-stain conditioner & followed with Minwax Stain in Jacobean on the bed. For the headboard my son wanted a chalkboard in his room so I painted the center planks before I added the casing & trim with chalkboard paint. After I added the rest of the wood, I carefully preconditioned my wood with Minwax pre-stain conditioner & followed with Minwax Stain in Jacobean on the rest of the wood. Super easy!!
