DIY BED UPCYCLED CLOSETMAID CUBEICALS? I have ClosetMaid 4-cubby Cubeicals, want to make bed platform for queen? Answered
I'm concerned that the Cubeicals are not sound enough structurally on their own, wondering if I need to somehow beef up their sturdiness? I have a futon frame to scavenge for bed slats, etc, am needing more storage space under bed. I'm in love with the "Nail-less, glue-less almost screw-less fire finished bed" by Tazo, and if the cost of materials to transform the Cubeicals into a workable bed frame is similar to his bed, I'll just make it instead.
I have two 4-cubby Cubeicals, but only want one cube of height for under the bed (the bed is about 12" thick already, and the cubes are about the same...
I would love some advice on how to proceed, if the cubes can be made safe, etc. They have been moved a few times and are a little on the wobbly side already at this point, so they definitely need SOMETHING to beef 'em up if I use them.
I'm fairly handy, but don't have a lot of wood working tools... I can prob borrow what I need as long as it's not super specialized, etc.
Also, I'm on a budget. like, a tiny budget :)
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate any thoughts on this!
