It’s time for a “would you rather”….would you rather pay $2,000 for a bed at a furniture store or DIY one for $200?? That’s a toughie, right? 🤷🏻♀️ .
This King Size Farmhouse Bed took Brad just a few hours, a few basic tools, and minimal lumber —and saved us SO much money. Beds (and tables) are PERFECT projects for first-time-DIYers! 👐🏼 We’ve saved the tutorial/process to our highlight reel (found under our Instagram profile) for easy reference.
We were so torn on whether to go with @oldbarnmilkpaint Weathered Stain or @oldbarnmilkpaint Gable Milk Paint for this bed against this @sherwinwilliams Peppercorn wall. But, in the end, We LOVE the gray paint (Gable by @oldbarnmilkpaint) but not the stark white nightstands. Gotta go back to the drawing board on those and the slightly off-white rug. 😅
It’s times like this I’m reminded I’m DEFINITELY not a professional. But this is how projects go sometimes, right?! It’s how we learn. 🤪👐🏼 We need to re-paint those and find a different rug, but until then—here’s a shot of the bed…again. 😂
