Second Project - Farmhouse King Bed

Submitted by scot price on Fri, 07/08/2011 - 11:41

This was our second project from the site.

We used the plans from the Queen Farmhouse Bed as a guide, and used information from the Two-Tone Kingzize Bed to finish it off.

Some differences we had were to used a single panel instead of multiple panels for the headboard and footboard. We then bordered that panel with 1x3's, and a 1x3 down the middle of the panels.

We also attached the box frame (we dont use boxsprings) a little higher than the plans. We attached these at 11.5 inches up. If you like high sitting beds, this will do it.

Great project. We havent sanded/stained it yet.

Thanks for the tip about attaching the frame higher. I prefer high-sitting beds (I'm tall, so I hate feeling like I'm falling onto the bed), so I'm happy to see I can make it higher up.

Love the single panels. Did you use one piece of wood for the panels? What size? Also, would love to see pictures of it with finish!
