Materials: fjellse bed frame, wood for headboard, stain, screws
Description: I had been eyeballing a simply designed designer bed that cost over 2 grand. With less than $100 I recreated the design out of a Fjellse bed frame..
Step 1: Buy the Fjellse bed frame for $49.99. Step 2: Put the bed frame together and then stain it with your favorite stain color. I chose a dark color called Jacobean. It’s my go to color and gives it a nice rich feel and easily hides the blah Fjellse frame. Step 3: Stain two slabs of pine Step 4: Coat if desired. I coated it with Osmo. It gives it a smooth finish, without the plasticy poly look. Step 4: Screw the two slabs of pine on to the Fjellse head board.
