My Sister and I Made The Platform Bed For My Daughter

Submitted by Cee Palmer on Sun, 10/26/2014 - 13:52

I decided on the Fillman Platform bed, for my daughter. It was a basic and simple style, the plans were well thought out, and the shopping list was a godsend. My daughter picked out a dark stain as well, which made the wood look really pretty. We broke up the platform and the headboard into two different days (so the stain would dry).

Love the bed!

Estimated Cost
$100.00 for platform and headboard. It was a little extra from the original estimated plans, because of the stain.
