My master bedroom has been neglected long enough. It is time to for a makeover and I started with a bed. A DIY farmhouse style bed. My new farmhouse bed has a large headboard with an X design in the middle, side rails, and a footboard. *Please note that these plans include optional slats to hold a box spring and mattress. I did not use slats in the building of my bed since my mattress and box spring are on a metal frame that fits within this bed.
Cut wood and drill pocket holes in the workshop, then assemble bed in the room will it will be located (this bed is heavy!)
Two people make the assembly go much smoother - especially when attaching the side rails!
Use a level when attaching the side rails
