My New Farmhouse Bed!

Submitted by JanaDee on Wed, 11/09/2016 - 09:58

This was my first project and I am hooked. This was an easy build. I only ran into challenges attaching the headboard and footboard to the frame because I really wanted to be able to disassemble it and reassemble just in case.. fortunately I located a website selling threaded metal inserts and I ended up just bolting it on with hex bolts. 

I was  just surprised by how fast I could build it and how long it took to finish it. Sand, wood filler, sand, caulk, prime, sand, paint, sand, paint. Get interrupted by my kids 100 times. 

Already plotting my next 3 builds..
