This is one of the most beautiful beds I’ve ever made.

Rustic wood paired with a modern form updates the farmhouse bed into a beautiful and functional focal point to your bedroom.

This plan covers all mattress sizes, the bed I built for reference is a standard king.

Thoughtful Design Features

You might not know it, but we are thinking of you when we design plans – here’s a few details that you’ll love:

  • Headboard sized so you won’t need a ton of decorative pillows, no expensive euro pillows needed!
  • Headboard sized for artwork above
  • Headboard panel is inset, which helps keep pillows on the bed
  • Comfortable finished mattress height even paired with today’s extra deep mattresses
  • Footboard is enclosed but siderails are not – so you can stand next to the bedside and not stub your toe
  • Easy to change sheets with mattress slightly embeded on the siderails
  • Panel boards sized to conserve materials and save you money

Plan Notes:

  • Mattress depth – This headboard works well with a 10″ or deeper mattress.  For a shorter mattress, an open gap below the headboard panel may be visible.  You can also increase the length of the panel boards to account for this.
  • Twin size – the twin size does not need the center support structure.
  • Modifying to Traditional Farmhouse Bed – Very easy to do, plans coming soon
  • Planking Cuts – note that the planking is right at 12″ and 24″ – if your 1x8s are exactly 8′ or 12′ – you may wish to cut boards 1/8″ less so all your cuts fit with the saw blade waste accounted for
  • Other materials for planking – yes, you can use just about any material instead of the 1×8 planking
