King size Farmhouse bed

We love our farmhouse bed! Thanks Ana! We made a few modifications. We wanted the legs to look a tiny bit more substantial, so we used 1x6 boards for the headboard and footboard. We made our 4x4 legs longer and placed them on the outside to make it a poster bed. I also wanted the end caps on my legs. I glued and nailed 1x6 scraps to 2x6 scraps and then cut a square to size at a 15 degree angle with my miter saw.

This bed is ABSOLUTELY beautiful! I am going to make it, why not, right?! Anyway, the ridiculously expensive mattress we purchased (per Dr's. orders) is a queen & reasonably new. I am wondering if you have a plan for this bed in that size? That would be perfect. I will be anxiously waiting for your reply. Thanks so much & keep up the BEAUTIFUL WORK, You have found your gift & have put it to good use thus far! WTG. Make your weekend a fabulous one!

Take care,

I don't have the plans for the queen size version. I would suggest using Ana's plans for the queen size farmhouse bed. Then, instead of your 4x4s being part of the headboard and footboard, attach them on the outside. In other words, the top panels will be cut to fit the headboard and footboard minus the legs. My 4x4 legs are 34" on the footboard and 60" on the headboard. I also opted out for the top 2x6. I hope I didn't confuse you too much. Please don't hesitate if you have more questions.
btw...thank you so much for your compliments!

I noticed your side table is the same color/style as the bed did you use this site for plans on that also? I LOVE your modifications for this bed!!
