Getting mattresses off the floor is essential to bedroom form and function. A bed frame creates the room structure, makes it easy to make the bed, and differentiates the mattress from the floor.
For about the cost of a box spring or metal bed frame, you can build a wood bed frame that removes the need for a bed skirt. A wood bed frame is much more beautiful, adds texture to the room design, and is sturdy and substantial.
In this free plan, I’ll show you how to build a wood bed frame using dimensional lumber (ie 2x4s) and two power tools: a drill and a saw to cut the wood.
This bed was designed and built in partnership with my friend Whitney at Shanty2Chic. Please take a second to stop over and visit Whitney at Shanty2Chic for lots more details and photos on this bed.
