Total Cost: Was under $300

Finishing Details:
I made this for a newly Wed couple that wanted there first bed to last a lifetime but didn't have a great deal of money. So to save money I made it out of builder grade 2×6 and 1×6. Stained and coated it with high gloss Polly. Made a few changes. Little heavy but a very solid bed.

    I built my own using the plans at www. – highly recommended you check those out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha
    Head on over to www. if you want to learn more – click the pink link above for some more plans! Best of luck on your building adventures!
