Modified Queen Farmhouse Bed

Submitted by KORR92 on Mon, 11/26/2012 - 18:09

I used Ana's Queen size Farmhouse bed with the modifications for the box spring. I also changed the plans slightly, instead of the 1" x4" on the footboard and head board I used 2" x 6" at the bottom. I don't have a nail gun or finishing nails so this provided the stability and saved me a few dollars. I also made the corner posts longer than the plans to make the bed taller.

I love this bed, I made it extra tall, so you have to jump into it. And there is plenty of storage underneath!

It took me and my dad about 4 hours of actual cutting and assembling, but an additional 10-20 hours of sanding and painting. It took me a few months to actually finish it after work.

THANK YOU ANA for the plans!!!
