Last year, my wonderful in-laws gave us two wingback reclining chairs that they no longer wanted. They were in great shape but I would need to recover them to fit into our decor.
After Kurt and I surprised ourselves by successfully building our very own Pottery Barn Farmhouse Bed, matching bedside tables were subsequently added to our long list of home projects. This new to do task was pushed to the bottom of the list as we already had bedside tables but a girl can only look at laminate furniture for so long. So on Memorial Day Weekend, while everyone we know had plans of vacationing, we had plans for farmhouse bedside tables by ana-white.com. Here is a picture of our Pottery Barn Farmhouse Bed with mismatching laminate nightstands. These nightstands have been reunited with their matching headboard in our guest bedroom… I plan on painting the whole set eventually.
After the yard, the next thing we focused on was our bed. We’ve always dreamed of having a bed big enough for us to each spread out in without touching each other. Romantic, I know, but I’m sorry… our bodies radiate heat. I surfed the internet and pinned bed frames I liked but kept coming back to the same Pottery Barn King Bed. Being the cheapos we are, we didn’t exactly want to pay for the oh-so-trendy $1,600 name-brand bed I had my eye on.
I started searching DIY projects on Pinterest and came across a DIY Pottery Barn Farmhouse Bed – PERFECT! Turns out there are pdf instructions for all sorts of furniture at Ana-White.com. This website is awesome!
*UPDATE: I’ve gotten a lot of requests for links to the plans since they have become a little harder to find… here ya go!
I downloaded the pdf and sent it to Kurt hoping/praying he would be up for the challenge. Surprisingly, he was!
