Introduction: WardroBED + Bonus Bike Wall Mount
I am living in a small 10 square meter room. So I was thinking how I could save space. To save space I thought about where in my room most of the space was getting wasted. And then I saw my bed. Most beds are pretty low above the floor and plenty of space above the bed is totally unused. So I started to think about how to use it as clever as possible and I came up with this wardroBED idea. Since I didn't document the build process, I decided to make some google-SketchUp images to illustrate it. I uploaded the SketchUp document, so you can access, download and use it.
Step 1: Main Frame
I started with the frame. I used 70x70 mm wood. In the first picture the back beam is screwed to the wall. To connect the beams together I used a special 3-way-woodjoint which looks pretty nice. I sawed the neede form into the beams and then glued it with wood glue together. You could use simple corner braces as well.
Step 2: Bed Frame
Well for the bed frame there is not a lot to say. I build it for a 1m x 2m mattress. The small beams in my case are 55x55 mm wood. And the planks are 200x18 mm wood. I screwed the beams together and then glued the planks with lots of wood glue together, so there won't be visible screwes, since I think they are not beatiful.
Step 3: Drawer
To join the parts of the drawer I used wood glue and wooden pegs. They were 6 mm in diameter and 30 mm. I made one drawer for clothes hanger. From below I screwed wheeles, which where fixed in the direction so the drawer can only be moved lengthwise.
Step 4: My Finished WardroBED
Here are a few pictures of my finished wardroBED. And it even helps getting out of bed, since I put my alarm somewhere in the room, so I have to get out of bed and it's not that easy to get into the bed again. I'm very satisfied of the result.
Step 5: BONUS: Bike Wall Mount
Simply buy the cheapest wooden box at the hardware store. Mine was about 4 bucks. Additionally you will need screws, wall plugs and a flat angle.
You simply need to first drill the wholes in the wooden box. Then drill the wholes in your wall. Finally screw the box to the wall. The flat angle is necessary, so the wood won't break at the screw wholes when stressed by the weight of the bike.
Besides of the bike I can store my lock, helmet, bike lights and tool bag in the box.
