I love the look and functionality of a platform bed frame with storage, but do not want to pay retail? This do-it-yourself bed can be built in a day, reduces clutter, and save you money in the end. Things You’ll Need; cubicles Unfinished, paint or stain, baskets. Buy cubicles unfinished a craft store or a furniture store unfinished. The bed shown above (double size) uses 6 double cubicles at a cost of $ 120 with AC Moore 50% discount. Even at full price it would cost $ 240 which is still below the price of most storage platform beds.
Select an end. If you go for a natural look, it can be done lightly sand the edges of the cubicles and. If you opt for the paint or stain, lightly sand cubicles and apply two coats of an end, allowing the finish to dry between coats.
Set design of the platform bed frame with storage so that the cubicles form a rectangle the size of the mattress. At the base and the head of the rectangle, you will have a single cubicle plus side of another cubicle (the image here the base of the bed shown). You will need two cubicles for each side of the rectangle.
If you use a box spring, then place it in the cubicles; add the platform bed frame with storage. If you choose to use only one mattress, you may want to add two more cubicles in the middle of the provision to provide stability for the mattress. Since you will not see these cubicles, it is not necessary to paint or stain them.
