Just What I was Looking For

Queen plans came out perfect. Bed frame hardware came in 4 counts so I added another middle support to use them all. Very solid, no creaking or movement.


Cost of wood made this project prohibitively expensive

Bed Base

Good plans. Easy to follow.

Bed Frame came out amazing

I had been planning to build our bed frame for a long time. I kept putting off planning the design and I wasn't too keen on paying for a plan, BUT this plan was a lifesaver! The plan was what I needed to get organized and get the project done. I made some small adjustments to make the bed a bit taller to allow for storage underneath.

Turned out great!

We bought the plans for the queen size platform bed and it turned out wonderful! So much sturdier and cheaper than anything I looked at in store. And pretty easy to complete if you have the space to do so.
