Introduction: "Floating Bed"

Growing tired of my boxspring on the floor I decided I wanted to create a bed frame that made it look like the bed was floating above the floor.  I left room for a headboard/lamp idea that I'll be completing in the next couple of weeks.

Step 1: The Planning Stage

I perhaps spent too much time and drew in too many supports  But for my first build of a bed I wanted to be meticulous.

Step 2: A Good Foundation.

I planned everything on to be supported on the main base frame with the second level that supports the box spring to line up on the base level.

Step 3: The Second Level

I built this level to line up with the level below and also added lateral slats across the top to give an even level of support across the box spring

Step 4: Sidewalls

I added side walls that I 'upholstered' in padding and a cotton grey padding.

Stay tuned for my headboard addition in the next little while.  I'm building hidden bedside lamps that swivel out from the top and light switches controlling it hidden behind cloth/foam covered panels.
