While you are waiting for it to dry, you can add some glam to the wrought iron with a little Rub n’ Buff: The gold highlighted the wrought iron and makes it show up better against our dark bedroom walls.

Working from the back of the headboard, use small wood screws (ideally you salvaged them from the old head board) to secure the wrought iron into the headboard.

Support the center beam with two 12″ 2×4 legs distributed in the center.

Updating old farmhouse

Preparing the Wrought Iron Oak Leaves: I removed all the wrought iron pieces from our queen-sized sleigh bed (headboard and footboard pieces.) Then I laid out all the pieces and cut one of the iron sections to add enough width to our new king size headboard.

If you don’t have wrought iron laying around, head to a salvage shop or get creative.

Add two 10″ tall 2×4 legs under each horizontal stud (as shown above and below.) Begin laying the horizontal 2×4 slats on top of the supports you installed. Go ahead and follow Ana’s plans to build the storage drawers.

I added some quarter round moulding onto our drawers.

Given the length of time we’d be sleeping on it, we decided it was finally time to make the switch and move up to a king.

But, I have to admit, I was sad about saying goodbye to the oak leaves.

A few sleepless nights later and I had formulated a brilliant plan of how I could use my beloved oak leaves in the new bed: I ended up altering Ana White’s Queen size farmhouse bed with storage drawers plans by sizing it for a king-sized mattress.

Plus, I altered the headboard design to incorporate my beloved oak leaf wrought iron.

To avoid fatigue and multiple battery charges, use a corded drill with a handle.

Brace yourself because the drill will spin if you aren’t ready for it.

You could use reclaimed boards in the void or cut a fun pattern into thin plywood with a jigsaw (band saw or scroll saw.) Or add an upholstered panel. To cut the wrought iron, use a metal cutting blade on a vibrating multi-tool to cut through one of the oak leaf sections.
