King size Farm House Bed. Project took about 30 hours of work (1-3 hours per night). Built with White Board and Pine woods. Pine was used for the head and foot boards slats. We made the mistake of making our bed head board and foot boards 6 inches too wide (mental brain fart). So our options where to scrap or figure something out. After some thought we decided to place a step on the running boards using a 1X3 (pine). The effect was stunning. Also added "vine" vertically to the end of both foot and head board, it looks better in person (you'll have to zoom into image). We took care in sanding all boards, staining using Wood preconditioner, then Minwax Colonial Maple, and then Semi-Gloss Minwax Polyurethane. We love the sturdiness of the bed! as our friends that have seen it have continuously repeat "It's beautiful, this is how furniture used to be made" couldn't agree more!
