full size bed made of 2×6 for frame and 2×8 for the feet. the feet have a “step” on them supporting the frame. assembled using pocket screws,with metal corner brackets for piece of mind. painted what does not show with three coats of poly for what does show. also used a roundover bit for all exposed edges

reusing the existing headboard from her old bed ,which was a metal frame. i like this one a lot better.

-- may not always be right,but,never in doubt.

I hope you will bring it inside before you go to bed.
Looks like it is coming together nicely.
