How To Make A King Size Bed

Building a bed is one of those projects that has been on my list for a VERY long time, but has never been a priority. Make sure there are no fungi or bacterial growth on the pallet because you would sleep on it so it should be clean and tidy. Everything you need to build it as well as the sketchup file for you to modify as needed is here. This bed frame is nice, but I have to say that the headboard is the real showstopper for me. The reclaimed wood just looks so full of character!

It can be removed to enable more storage under the actual bed frame for the user(several plastic bins fit well in this space). My suggestion would be to hit up Pinterest or do a Google image search for some pallet bed builds. I crossed this bridge recently as I’m literally in the middle of building a platform bed out of ash and walnut with storage.

If you want $75 off a mattress that is crazy comfortable and ships to your door then go to /april Mattresses like this require a solid bottom, if you do not have a Tempurpedic style mattress then you can don’t have to have a solid platform. That said, rarely does the exact middle of my bed get slept on by the two people that regularly sleep in it, so it might not matter much. I had two MDF doors from an old broken wardrobe that I cut to length and nailed onto the frame. When it comes to sleeping, the luxury of a king sized bed is an absolute dream (even if you like to think of yourself as more queen-like).

You can see here that the screws are visible on the outside of the frame, but I did countersink them just a bit so that I can fill in with wood filler and sand it smooth before I stain the bed frame. Now go get your build on and be sure to tag me (@jenwoodhouse #jenwoodhouse #houseofwood) so I can see your handiwork! Instead, I put the weak board on top of the metal frame on the end, where it would be more supported and have the least amount of pressure on it.

Sum up: it will probably be fine, but you’ll almost certainly get a better mattress (and your money’s worth) if you buy a king size and pay someone to deliver it. You can also create a storage bed with drawers and cavities, put in some books and baubles or store clothes. To make a perfect trundle, you have to put the wheel in each corner of the platform. Our bed came out even more amazing and has given us confidence to do more DIY projects.

I measured down 3 1/4 inches from the top of the frame, and aligned the top edge of the 2″ x 3″ lumber, and then attached it using wood glue and 2-inch wood screws. I have just purchased a latex hybrid (latex on top high density foam on bottom) and am in the process of finding a foundation for it. These types of mattresses supposedly require a slotted wood type (not solid) and some of them are ridiculously expensive nor have I felt certain that any of them would work with my bed. Wooden slats are placed perpendicular to the bed rails to support the mattress/mattress box spring. Now I sleep like an adult, on a mattress on a boxspring on a frame on the floor.

We put a sheet of plastic over the plywood to prevent moisture bleed-through from the non-dried wood.

When he remembers to make his bed in the morning, the buckets are completely hidden from view. One warning from Heider: It’s probably a terrible idea to take on this project if you cannot nail the bed frame into your walls, as nailing the frame provides a significant amount of support to the structure.
