Yeah! Yippee! Hurray! The bed is made!!!! My hubby made this bed, adapting these free plans slightly to accommodate our height & width preferences.
The foot board matches the headboard- it is a little tricky for this photographically challenged person to get the king sized bed all in the photo- any by the way my walls are a dark cream- not yellow- in this room.
I did the painting and finishing. Hint: Save yourself bunches of time and aggravation by investing in good paint- I don't recommend Rustoleum or Ralph Lauren paint- too thin and too runny.
I do like the Ralph Lauren finishing glaze that I had tinted with Crosby to make a nice antiquing glaze. Home Depot is closing out their Ralph Lauren line, so mine was on sale. And FYI- in spray paints I like Krylon- my hubby says I was a tagger in an earlier life (eye roll).
