My Queen Farmhouse Bed

Submitted by redhead_61 on Fri, 01/06/2012 - 07:34

My little two year old is sleeping on this right now, hehe, which is so funny to see his little body take up only 1 square foot of it.

We got a queen mattress from a family member and I had been wanting to build this bed for a while so what better excuse. I had a TON of 1x3's from other projects so used those as slats instead of 1x6's as in the plan. I also used some other scraps up so my headboard part is shorter than in the plan which I also was fine with. It barely fits in his little 10 x 10 starter home room, but I am still pretty proud of it.

I am a beginner and I understand what to do until this point. I am confused by this. Can it be explained in another way: Thanks.

 

Construct the frame as shown, leaving a 3 1/2' overhand on the headboard end to secure the frame to the headboard. Predrill to at least 4 holes to in this overhang to ease attatching to the headboard.
