Twin Farmhouse Bed

Submitted by kelli224 on Wed, 06/29/2011 - 18:56

One of our first projects was the Farmhouse twin bed for our son. We couldn't love that bed anymore than we do. It is gorgeous and while it was a learning process, it was still much easier than we ever thought possible.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
under $150
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Pine
Finish Used
It was sanded many times, primed and then painted with flat Sherwin Williams "Commodore". We don't really like the glossy look and after a few months, it still looks just as it did the day we finished. Because there's no poly, it will be easy to touch-up when after our two young boys bang their toys into it!

Your bed has inspired me to build one for my son. LOVE the color too! I'm going to add a trundle so he can have friends stay over. I'll post when I've got it finished.
