DIY platform bed plans were very helpful when my boy asked me to help him build a bed. I had bought a group of woodwork plans a while back for my shed but I did not realize that I had lots of bed plans in that package as well . There were a few designs of beds, the list of obligatory material including all of the hardware and material recommendations.
My oldest boy moved into his first apartment with his girlfriend. Of course we helped them out and gave them a lot of furniture and her parents did the same. The single thing they did not have on their list was a bed. They’d purchased a new mattress but they had to put it without delay on the floor till they find something. We all did it!
After looking around for a bed my child asked me if I could help him build one. I taught that it was a smart idea and that would save them a lot of cash. I recollected the set of plans I acquired the previous year for my shed and I looked into it for bed plans. Naturally there were some bed plans, and plenty of them.
I went to my son’s house and pulled the plans on is PC. Selecting the bed they wanted was the hardest part of all. They spend all evening taking a look at all the different designs. I figure I’d come back after they agreed on something. The next week end they’d printed out their favorite one out of all of the DIY platform bed plans available.
My boy and I rigorously checked the material list and went to get everything. The overall cost of the wood, red oak incidentally, and all the hardware cost less than one third of the price of a platform bed already made. We used a sheet of cheaper plywood for the platform and nice wood to go round it and for the head.
It took us a day to put everything together and the following day to sand a little and apply a nice coat of water based polish. The result was fantastic. My child and his girl think their bed is better that the ones they saw in stores and they got it at a little part of the price tag. All of it was so worth it; my child asked me if he could borrow my set of woodwork plans to get some ideas for nightstands.
