Simple DIY Platform Bed

This is a very easy piece to manufacture so it is great in the event that you are an amateur! Here’s the means by which I manufactured it! This arrangement is for a full size bed however it is anything but difficult to alter the estimations to oblige another size.


I began by making the entirety of my cuts for my top and base edge. At that point, I penetrated the entirety of my pocket gaps with my Kreg Jig set for 1/2″ thick sheets. (You can discover the Kreg Jig HERE on Amazon) and look at our.

I appended the top casing with 2 1/2″ pocket opening screws and did likewise for the base casing.

Next, I flipped the top edge over and connected the base edge to it with 2 1/2″ pocket gap screws.

I flipped it back finished and joined the middle help with 2 1/2″ pocket opening screws. You may require help flipping the bed back finished, now, since it is substantial.

At long last, I connected the 2×3 spikes with 2 1/2″ wood screws (I call for 2×2 in the plans on the grounds that 2×3’s are not accessible in each district. On the off chance that you do utilize 2×2’s for the spikes, get furring strips to set aside cash). I like to utilize the Spax self-tapping screws. I discover them at Home Depot and they are expensive yet you don’t have to pre-drill with them! On the off chance that you utilize customary wood screws, try to pre-drill first to keep the wood from parting.

To complete, I applied one-layer of Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut Stain (you can discover it HERE on Amazon). In the event that you are purchasing your provisions at Home Depot, get the Varathane brand in Dark Walnut (it’s a similar stain).

At the point when the bed was dry, the centers and I took it inside and into our little man’s room! I utilized my brad nailer to append the 1×3 braces. I simply separated them out equitably and joined them to the two spikes and the inside help. You can utilize the modest furring strips for this part, Just ensure they are smooth so they don’t destroy your sleeping cushion.

To connect the headboard to the bed, I bored 2 1/2″ spax screws from the posterior of the headboard legs into the base and top casings of the stage.

I simply love it so much and I’ve caught our 11-year-old boasting to his companions (on a couple of events) that his mother assembled his bed – which is the best part for me.

Remember to look at the headboard designs HERE and on the off chance that you like the divider shading in his room (I’m fixated!) you can find out about it HERE! I have gotten a great deal of inquiries regarding the blanket on his bed, it is from Pottery Barn Teen however, I got it two or three years back so I don’t know that it is as yet accessible.

Much obliged such a great amount for halting by!
