So, after Christmas, Hubby decided to get our bedroom cleaned out & make it more of a sanctuary for me. When he did this, we talked about making a frame for our bed. I told him I'd like to have our bed higher as it would make it easier to get out of bed.
I found a simple bed plan online & modified it. Hubby bought wood yesterday & we started our project.
I spent over an hour sanding all the wood down.
Then we build the outside frame.
It was pretty late so we slept on our mattress on the floor.
This morning we drilled holes & bolted the posts to the frame.
Here's the frame with posts attached.
Next we put braces in. Don't look too closely at our spacing!
Next we put plywood on top after we cut out the corners for the posts.
Then I took batting & material (old sheet) and covered the edges of plywood so we wouldn't get splinters.
Here it is finished.
Next we put our box springs on.
Then our select comfort bed. Hubby had to check it out.
Here is the finished product.
It ended up taller than we thought it would be. We need to get a couple of boards to put on each end to keep the mattress from sliding. Hubby is also talking about building me steps to make it easier to get in & out of bed. But other than that, our project is done!
