King Size Bed

Submitted by hailey807 on Fri, 01/17/2020 - 19:37

I love the farmhouse look and wanted to start changing out pieces in my bedroom. Good quality furniture is expensive, so I thought I would checkout DIY projects and came across Ana’s plans for a king bed. Her plans got me started and I changed a few things along the way. I LOVE the end result. 
 

I used Knotty Alder and Danish Oil in Dark Walnut. Alder is an easy wood to work with and the Danish Oil brings out all the beautiful grain. I highly recommend both. 
 

I decided to buy the metal frame and plywood to place the mattress on. 

Estimated Cost
500.00
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Knotty Alder
Finish Used
Danish Oil in Dark Walnut. I applied one coat and the finish is satin.

FYI: Danish Oil is very easy to work with and it made the grain of the wood “POP”. The great thing about this product is that it’s a stain/sealer combination and you apply it with a foam paint brush.
