If you don’t count finding the wood, taking apart whatever it was before, removing the nails, and cleaning it up; then it really only took us a few hours to put these bed frames together.
Oliver’s bed is made from a found futon frame (the nice looking ends), and some cheap, real wood cabinets we bought extremely cheap from a thrift store in town. The queen size bedframe is made from the same cabinets and a pine futon frame (different than Oliver’s). Both were designed to have airflow underneath the bed to help with mold issues in the summer.
We’re planning to write a booklet on the different projects we implemented this year, and the design for these will definitely be included, as they were very simple to construct, and in the case of the queen size bed frame, has looots of storage under it.
