DIY: My Inspiration. Plans for my king size bed.

8:19 AM

Here is the inspiration.

This bed will be coming my way soon! My engineer hubby has been drawing out the plans for this beauty, king size and all. It's so nice to have someone who can look at a piece of furniture and say, "I can make that." He'll most likely make the side tables too. Of course it definitely won't end up being the same exact thing but I'm so excited!
Once he builds it, I'll do the painting and work on the fabric part of the headboard.

The plans

We are going to add some extra storage compartments under the mattress down the middle of the bed. Thanks Shannon for the idea! The feet may end up different too. The drawers will probably be different as well. I will be documenting this entire project so stay tuned!

  1. Oooo, I'm so glad you are sharing this! And excited to see the results!

  2. Can't wait to see it! I really want Rick to make me a head board. Maybe after he sees that David made you a bed frame he'll be willing to make my head board:)

  3. It's amazing that you are doing this as a DIY project. The King bed frame that inspired it looks great. Unfortunately, I'm not that handy so we prefer to buy our furniture. However, with research, I find I can meet my needs as well as my budget. When I needed to replace my bed frame, I found that 1800mattress had a really useful site for everything, from research to shopping-- and they offer a whole lot more than just mattresses. With how helpful I've found them to be in the past, I would definitely recommend taking a look if you decide not to go the DIY route.

  4. Thanks for sharing! I'm planning to rearrange the head board of my mattress too :)
