DIY Scrapwood Farmhouse Bed

This project was born of necessity.Two of our littles shared a bedroom, complete with bunk beds. It was time to separate them, so we demolished the bunk bed. While we were hopeful that we could just hack them in half, it didn’t work out that way. In the end, we were left with a pile of wood.After some trial and error, I came up with a plan for two bed frames, complete with headboards and footboards. Thankfully, their bunk beds were made of lumber with common dimensions and nothing out of the ordinary.These are going to be beds that hopefully, they will pass on to their children.There are SO MANY amazing bed frame plans out there. But, I either didn’t have the right lumber, or I didn’t have a specialty tool. These beds were made with 3 tools; a miter saw, a table saw and a drill. Easy Peasy.If you purchase the lumber, you will need the following:Headboard:3 -2X6X84 – 1X3X81 box of 1 1/4″ screws1 box of 2 1/2″ screwsFootboard:1 – 2X6X81 – 2X6X102 – 1X3X8The platform is made from 1 sheet of 23/32 plywood.Cut list:Headboard:1 – 2X6 @ 43″2 – 2X6 @ 35 1/2″2 – 2X6 @ 42″10 – 1X3 @ 29 1/2″Footboard:1 – 2X6 @ 43″2 – 2X6 @ 35 1/2″2 – 2X6 @ 26″10 – 1X3 @ 13 1/2″1 – 1X3 @ 30″
