DIY Channel's website, Ty from Extreme Home Makeover has a website, Norm Abrams, or even just go to the local library if your city has not closed it, and go through their furniture building section.

Main question is, does your daughter want a four poster, a canopy, or a more modern slab type bed frame?

Check out: http://ana-white.com/ She has plenty of different plans available. Over the summer I used these plans to make one from her farmhouse collection: http://ana-white.com/2009/10/farmhou...8100_7467.html
