Building Platform Bed with Drawers


Platform bed with drawers helps below provide a bottom frame under your bed, as well as a chest of drawers or just a little extra storage space. Building it yourself is much cheaper than buying one and allows you to be creative because you choose a color, wood and pattern for the drawers.


Make sure you have the measurements or mattress you will be able to determine about the future platform bed with drawers. The base board will need to be about one and a half bigger than the mattress so the drawers are easily accessible and. Get the box boxes first.  Use bed pegs if you want to create more space under your bed for larger drawers. Measure this space, and then move the bed to the side so that you can fix the frame. Use four thick, solid pieces of wood for the frame. Make sure these are higher when the drawers so the drawers slide in and out easily. Screw these four pieces together, and then use another thick sturdy piece to cross the center of the frame.

Platform bed with drawers makes smaller cross-sections of wood planks, about half as large on undersized pieces, to cross the inside of the frame. This will be the part that supports the boxes. It will look like a tic-tac-toe on board. Secure these to each other with a screwdriver or screwdriver. Secure the box’s groove to the cross-section wooden planks with screws. Attach the box’s rails to the drawers as well, and connect. If you want, you can place a large solid sheet of wood slab under the four sturdy bass pieces to support the mattress, or you can nail wood planks over the top. Put the mattress back to the BMC and make sure it is robust and works well.
