The revisions that I have made:
- Increased the height to approximately 20" from the top of the mattress to the floor
- Upholstered the headboard
- Painted the unfinished frame
- Added a custom made removable bed skirt
Level of Difficulty
I found this project to be very rewarding as it involves a few skills; Woodworking and sewing mainly. I have never really upholstered anything before, so it was very fun to work with new materials and experience new challenges. If i had to give this a rating, I would give it a 7 out of 10. That might drop a bit if you sew frequently and have a similar level of woodworking knowledge.
The total cost of the project is approximately $200 (not including the mattress)
I strongly recommend that you take on this project if you already have a RYKENE bed and you want to make it look a little more grown-up.
Please read and understand the owner's/safety manual of all your tools before using them. Some guards and safety devices were removed for the making of this instructable, I DO NOT recommend you remove any safety devices or guides from your tools. Safety comes first. Never put yourself in danger.
Note: I believe that this bed was previously named DALSELV
