Building your own bed frame doesn’t seem like an easy project. And it does require some skill – you probably won’t do it for your first DIY project ever. But it’s not rocket science too! Some good plans and the right inspiration will get you through building this piece of furniture in no time.

Talking about the farmhouse bed style, it’s all the rage these days. The rustic look of the natural wood finish works in any style of decor. It’s a great way to add more coziness to a room. And while it’s hard to say where this trend has started, it’s safe to say that Ana White was one of the first to build the DIY farmhouse bed.

Farmhouse Platform

Platform beds eliminate the need for box springs. Instead, they feature a built-in base that incorporates a solid panel or a slat support system. You can choose a light or bolder finishing for this project. Lighter finishes like sand, natural and maple infuse an interesting splash of color. Check out the tutorial to see how to build this platform bed.


Herringbone Bed

The Herringbone bed can be crafted using fine veneers and oak for a perfect finish. You can also incorporate mitered frames and close-set hardwood panels. To ensure exceptional workmanship, hand-piece the veneers. Doing so allows you to blend contrasting and complementary textures.
