Build your own princess and the pea playset with free plans from Ana-White.com
1/2" plywood - you won't need much, about 2 square feet
1 - 1x4 @ 11" (could also use 1/2" plywood)
nails or staples and glue OR Hot Glue
spray primer and paint recommended
1 - 1/2" thick plywood or MDF @ 4-1/2" x 11" (headboard)
1 - 1/2" thick plywood or MDF @ 4-1/2" x 8" (footboard)
2 - 1/2" thick plywood or MDF @ 3-1/2" x 11" (siderails)
1 - 1x4 @ 11" OR 1/2" thick plywood @ 3-1/2" x 11" (the 1x4 would give you more to attach too so it's preferred)
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

I made this bed but cutting the diamond shapes was a bear. I used mdf and will try again with pine to see if I can get a better cut. Mine just looks sloppy.
