Built this for my teen daughter's room. I changed the legs to 2x6 in order to fit in a tighter space as she has a small room and we needed to spare as much of the space moving around the foot of her bed as possible. It saved a few inches total in length by not using 4x4 legs. I also changed the style of the headboard and footboard to a slat design. She loves it and even says she hopes to hold onto it for her kids to have someday. Makes my heart smile! This is just part of why I love to build. It's quality, sturdy furniture that will last for years to come.

Nice job! I built the same bed and made some modifications myself. I like the whitewash finish. Hopefully that piece stays in the family for many years to come.
