Start making your cuts!

Use a miter saw to cut the 4×4 legs down to size. Next cut the 2×4 boards and pickets to length for both the headboard and footboard. The measurements can be found in the FREE DIY Pete Bed Frame plans which you can download in PDF format.


Layout the newly cut pieces for the footboard to get an idea of how it will look.


Sand the wood

Use an orbital sander with 120 grit sandpaper. Smooth out the surfaces and go around the ends to clean up rough edges. If you are using cedar pickets you''s pocket hole time!

Use a pocket hole jig to create pocket holes in the 2×4 boards. The short boards will need 2 pocket holes on each end Three of the longer boards will need 2 pocket holes on each end. If you need help understanding Kreg Jig settings, check out my buddy Ty''m doing in the photo below. They''s off the table. This way the frame is centered in the middle of the 4×4 legs. Please refer to my video tutorial for more information.


Connect the top board from the underside using the 2 1/2 inch pocket hole screws.


Use wood glue and pocket hole screws to connect the lower board.


Add fence pickets

Glue and nail the pickets in place. I used 1 1/4 inch long 16 gauge nails. Use 2 nails at each location. I used 4 pickets. If they don''d like.


Attach the cedar pickets. I used 5 full pickets and ripped a 6th picket down to about 2 inches in width on my table saw to get a perfect fit.

Make the rails

Cut the 2×8 boards down to the length noted in the plans. Cut the 2×2 board to the same length.

Connect the 2×2 to the 2×8 using 2 1/2 inch long wood screws and wood glue.  The 2×2 board will hold the box spring in place.

Seal or stain / seal your project

Diy Rolled Ice Cream Tablehow to Diy Rolled Ice Cream Table for Now it is time to choose a finish for your project. For the DIY bed frame I chose Minwax Clear Semi-Gloss Polyurethane. This is an oil based sealer that will bring out the rich colors of the wood. The knots will darken and the wood will have a warm glow to it. For those of you who like a more raw type finish I''t get it on too thick. If you have a few drips here and there simply brush them out.


Lightly sand between coats

Allow the sealer plenty of time to dry. Dry time will vary depending on the temperature and humidity. I was able to do a light sanding with 600-800 grit sandpaper after about 12  hours. Sanding lightly will smooth out the surface and remove rough areas.


Apply a second coat of sealer

After sanding, apply a very light second coat of sealer. Let the final coat dry and keep the bed frame out in the garage for a few days to air out before bringing into your home.


Add bed frame rail hardware

Attach rail hardware. I found some super affordable bed frame rail hardware here. I measured 1 the 1 last update 2020/07/09 3/4 inch down from the top of the 2×8 board and put a mark. Next, I placed the rail hardware at the mark and close to flush with the end of the board. It can be flush or about 1/16 of an inch in to help give a more snug fit. Attach using 1 inch screws. The middle hole is for a set screw that can be used once the hardware is installed and the frame is assembled.Attach rail hardware. I found some super affordable bed frame rail hardware here. I measured 1 3/4 inch down from the top of the 2×8 board and put a mark. Next, I placed the rail hardware at the mark and close to flush with the end of the board.

The middle hole is for a set screw that can be used once the hardware is installed and the frame is assembled.


The lower part of the rail starts 9 inches up from the floor. Use some of your left over 4×4 board to make 9 inch spacers to prop your rails off the ground and hold them at the desired height. Then grab the L shaped piece and put it over the flat plate of the rail. Next, slide the L bracket up so the buttons move into the small groove and closer to the 4×4. Then use your pencil to mark on the 4×4 where the bracket should be placed. For more clarification please refer to the DIY bed frame video tutorial.


Attach the L bracket to the 4×4 with three 1 inch wood screws. Make sure the head of the screw is flush with the the 1 last update 2020/07/09 bracket.

Test fit the hardware. It should fit firmly in place.


Here is a look at the final product while airing out for a couple days in the garage. I test fit 4 wood slats that will help support the box springs.
