Reader DIY Project: King-Size Bed by Jason Ackerman

We recently received an interesting DIY project from Jason Ackerman, president of Imagine This Design Group, a company in Buffalo/Niagara, USA. We thought that sharing it could only have a positive effect, so here it is: “I just completed a king size bed I was commissioned to make for a client. The bed was designed around one thought: reuse. The client wanted a reclaimed distress look so we went to our local reuse dealer and found a batch of wood. 100 year old pine from a building in downtown Buffalo, NY. The material is 3″ x 8″ and I thought there would be great design play using the thick material and incorporating a delicate basket weave pattern in the headboard.“- Jason wrote us. Freshome readers, we would like to read your honest opinions about this project and invite you to share your own design creations by e-mail or Facebook!

    Excellent idea! Eco-friendly beds or furniture in general. Why waste natural materials why they can be reused? I would love to see not only beds, but also other examples of how home interior can be made using recycled materials.
