Rustic Platform Bed

  • February 21, 2019


This was a special order bed from my daughter's friend. She showed me a picture of what she wanted and I worked from that. The head board is tongue and grove 1x6 boards randomly cut and stacked. Platform sides are 2x8 inch on 2x6 rails connected to head board with metal brackets for easy assembly and breakdown. Finish is Minwax Espresso with Minwax Polyacrylic satin finish.

  • Any possibility you could provide a materials list or write-up on this? Looking to build a bed frame and LOVE this, it looks amazing!

    • Thanks!  This was actually my first "sale". The client sent me a pic of what she wanted.  I am new at this so I basically used Ana White platform bed design and adjusted it.  The sides are 2x8 on 2x6.  The headboard is grooved planks cut at varying sizes put together attached to an "H" shaped 2x8 form.  There was some adjustments made along the way.
