Rustic farmhouse bed set made for a family member. All made from fur and construction grade material. Bed was built to last and can be taken apart and relocated. They needed a new bed and didnt want to spend $1k on a store bought item that would fall apart in a few years. The side tables were a gift that I added at the last minute.

Very nicely done! The wood and stain go really well with the decor (something that has recently come to my attention due to my wife’s insistence that we coordinate the furniture/paint/bedding before I start building anything for the bedroom).

Good job … I like the combo of paint and stain! The very low shelf is a nice touch. Kudos!

Very nice bed. Was wondering if you remember what brand and color stain you used on the bed? And clear coat maybe?

I used minwax- Dark Walnut stain and Minwax wipe on poly for the top coat. I sanded all the highly visible areas down to atleast 220, then I did two coats of the stain (second coat just to get it a little darker). Once that was dry i put 3 coats of wipe on poly on the entire bed and then another 1-2 coats for the head board and anywhere skin contact would be increased. Hope that helps.
