This is a modification of a Rustic Daybed that I built at one time. Even though it is available in twin each time I build it the customer want it in a full size. You don’t see a full size daybed very often. This was built in April 2013.

I substituted the bronco with a cross. The cross is form King’s Metals and is cast iron.

-Full size top
-Twin size trundle
-3 drawers
-Rustic finish

This looks like it would be a nice addition to your inventory and should sell well as we’re in what is affectionately referred to as “The Bible Belt.” Also, I like what you’ve done.

how did you install those small pieces on the side and the back board? I was thinking about doing that for a desk project. is it just a dado across the whole board and slip the strips into the dado?

What color stain and type of finish did you use? I really like the color.

Have your say...
