Building a Bed

I happen to be kid-free for about 24 hours.  So I thought it was high time that I got working on my unfinished bed project.  {Have I mentioned that I have an unfinished headboard and footboard in my garage?   It’s been there so long that my kids thought it was scrap wood and drew on it.}

Here is a look at what I started with today….

I went to the lumber yard and picked up more wood to complete my project.  Then this afternoon, I got to work!

I am using plans from Ana White, so I won’t be doing a tutorial.  {Click here for details on building your own.}

After several hours of working, and yet another trip to Lowe’s, I completely finished the headboard AND the footboard!

I still have to do the bed rails to support the box spring and mattress. And of course, I have to fill all of the holes, sand and then paint the bed.  So I’m far from done.  But I feel good about the progress that I made today!

  1. Great job. I’m super impressed. I think I should’ve took wood shop instead of band in middle school.

  2. Isn’t Anna White Amazing!
    Looking forward to the final product…so not using chalk paint?
    I just painted the dresser with chalk paint – not too bad of an experience just need to wax it and add the handles back on!
