I have been CrAzY busy getting my oldest son’s room redone over the last week or so. He has been in bunk beds, but I was ready for a big boy bed that he could really grow into!
Of course I didn’t have to look far for inspiration…
I found this awesome bed on Pottery Barn Teen!
Yup. I love it! I love ALMOST everything about it…
Except the darn price tag! $800 without the shipping and tax… Ouch.
So… I hit up our sweet friend Ana for some plans and built it myself.
You can see the plans for the bed HERE on Ana’s site!
Today I will share the bed and I will be back to show you the headboard.
For the bed alone I spent $70 in supplies including stain! Can’t beat that!
Here are some progress pictures of the bed as I was building it, but you can see very detailed and EASY plans HERE on Ana’s site!
I used my Kreg Jig to make pocket holes for the bed frame. You can also use wood glue and regular screws, but this tool makes it SO much easier! Here are my pocket holes. I put 2 on each end of each long board and also used Gorilla Wood Glue to keep things extra sturdy since I know the little boy that will be sleeping in this bed 😉
And the frame together…
The feet of the bed… I LOVE the angle of them. I used a 10 degree cut for mine. I think it gives the bed a modern and custom look to it!
All ready to stain…
I used my favorite stain on the entire bed… I used one coat because I love seeing the grain of the wood on it…
My final step was putting it in his room! Here are some pictures of the bed and I will share the headboard later :-)!!
Yep! It’s official. I LOVE it. Did I mention that it cost me under $150 to build the whole thing?? That makes me love it even more!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
