It’s time for a “would you rather”….would you rather pay $2,000 for a farmhouse 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 made our bed a king size, but you could easily make this a queen or even a twin- just adjust your measurements! 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 accent 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. ?

UPDATE: We’ve done a few additional projects in this room since we first posted this. Most recently, we completely updated our decor with the Home Depot! Don’t worry, we kept the farmhouse bed. You can see the whole update by visiting this post HERE.
