I made this bed pretty much by myself, my hubby helped me assemble it in the bedroom. It is king size so I had to do my own measurements. To my surprise it was pretty easy. Just make your measurements accurate. Had blast. Next project please!
$130 I splurged on the trim and spent $37. Plus I had 2x4's on hand for the bed frame.
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
Dark walnut I had on hand. I couldn't find the gel stain I wanted. I would have preferred to not see such a contrast with the grain then I sealed it with a satin spray. After a few months I ended up painting the bed. I was just not happy with the wood look.
