How to make a king size bed
Building a bed is one of those projects that has been on my list for a VERY long time, but has never been a priority. It’s not something I’d normally show off, and we’ve slept just fine with our mattress and box springs on the floor (for an embarrassingly long time).
Finally, it was time. I didn’t want to make a relatively useless frame, and since we have two cats, I didn’t want them to be able to hide underneath it. They’re tough enough to clean up after when we can easily reach the mess.
A low, storage bed was the answer and it was surprisingly easy! The entire structure is 2×4 and 1/2″ plywood since you never actually see any of it. I faced the bed and drawers with some reclaimed barn wood that I had, but you could use any type of material and make it completely unique to YOU.
Here’s what I did.
