Platform/storage Bed Frame





Introduction: Platform/storage Bed Frame

So after taking bits and pieces from the following instructables and doing a lil research and design of my own. I decided to embark on making my own platform/storage bed. This is a very bare instructable cause it was just myself taking pictures mostly. You get the basic idea/design. It cost about $380 to build with the most expensive things being the drawer slides. I still havent completely finished it so more pictures will be added. Just wanted to get this up here to hopefully inspire someone to make their own. If you have any ?'s about the materials I used etc just ask. And yes it is very heavy and was really hard getting up the stairs but will withstand alot of abuse. ;-)

    Thanks for posting the estimated cost of the project, I've seen a number of projects that ignore that and lull the DIYer into building an asset that costs far more than a comparable retail item. Of course, they don't find that out until they've exceeded their budget and they're only halfway thru the project. Wood is not cheap.

    Any plans or instructions on how to make this or link to instructions? I think this is a great bed frame awesome work!!

    I do not sorry. I only had a scribble and a guesstimate on what I needed and how I was going to build it before I started. Kinda winged it as I was going. I posted the other instructable links to get a good idea of how to build. If I was going to do it again with the knowledge in woodworking I have learned, I would change my design mostly.

    That's a lovely amount of storage in that bed! Now to throw on a lovely coat of paint on it….
