Needless to say, you will also need to have access to wood. If you are looking to stain the wood, you are going to want to apply some wood conditioner to your 2x4s before assembling the frame. Choose your color of stain and do one piece at a time, ensuring that two coats are applied if necessary. Apply some lacquer as well to give your finished bed frame a sealing shine!
