DIY Farmhouse Bed

OK I can’t take much credit for this one because it was built by Mr. Creative Dominican with a little help from our oldest, but I did all the begging and the painting to get this done and that counts right? I was shocked that the hubs agreed to do this project when I approached him with Ana-White’s Farmhouse plans. It was a bigger shock when we went to the store to get the wood and he wanted to get the higher quality and more expensive one (he is totally getting the DIY bug LOL) I really wanted the cheaper cracked and imperfect wood for a really country farmhouse feel. I originally planned to distressed the heck out of it, but I loved it so much in plain white that I decided to skip the distressing.

At the time I wasn’t blogging much so we didn’t take lots of pictures of the process but I love how it turned out so I wanted to share.

The first coat of paint was brushed on and that was a big yuck! I gave it a second coat using a foam roller and that made it soooooo much better. No brush strokes at all! I love it. Please ignore the ugly lamps and tables they will be gone soon (another project 🙂 ).
