Farmhouse Bedroom Set- The Bed

6 Materials
2 Days

We are digging this new farmhouse bedroom set! We made a beautiful bed and matching side tables. Happy us and happy customer. Here's how it came to be.

In the video you can see me cutting the head board pieces to size. After the pieces are all cut to size, you need to prep the trim over the top of the headboard, and the bottom, back, and the front to hold them in place.

This is how you should assemble the head board.

The next step is to add the 4x4 posts and the top header pieces.

Repeating the same steps produces the head board. Lastly, you have to make the side rails and slats!

Assembling the bed!

Sneak peak at the side tables! Check out my profile to see the full process. :)

We stained the bed with Minwax dark walnut stain and sealed it with clear satin Minwax sealant. (both can be found on amazon!)

I love the rich stain and it looks awesome! We then brought it to our happy customer's home and here's how it looks in it's new home.

The beautiful bed in it's new home!

    How do I paint room with carpet. Baseboards

      Try painters tape on the carpet as close to the base board as you can get. The wider tape the better. Make sure to press it down firmly on carpet. Don’t saturate your paint brush with paint just make several swipes at each area as you paint. As soon as your paint dries be sure to remove tape, like a few hours. Good luck.

    Absolutely gorgeous. My only question (I didn't actually see it) was how did you connect the 4x4 posts to the headboard?
