Expedit Queen Platform bed
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Description: We were inspired by other Expedit bed hacks, specifically this one and decided to make a Queen Platform bed. My daughter moved into an apartment and we needed to have more storage as well as a nice size bed.
We were very excited that we (two females without any experience) could create this bed. We used 2 1x5 bookcases, 1 1x2, and 2 1x1 bookcases so that we can get as close to a queen size (60x80) as possible. We attached a continuous hinge to the 2 pieces of 60x40 plywood, so that she can have storage under the bed as well. A black piece of fabric was used to cover the plywood. and we used a 4x4x12 but into 8 17.6 inches, which we used support posts. We used brackets and 3/4 size screws to attach the posts to the plywood.
I think that's it.. enjoy
