King Size Platform Bed With Storage

King size platform bed – As any ten-year-old boy can tell you, the space under your bed makes for an efficient storage solution. A king size platform bed measuring 18 inches high cover more than 50 cubic feet of storage space. By building a king size platform bed options, you can take advantage of the space savings compared to buying a prefabricated bed frame. Set aside an afternoon for this project, plus accommodation for the paint to dry.


Cut your planks and plywood to the necessary lengths using your chainsaw. Sand all faces in your timber with coarse sandpaper. Set a 78-inch wooden plank and a 60 inch plank together in an L-shape, with the longer end of the plank bears against the surface of the shorter. Secure them with two L-braces in the inside corner, set each brace 3 inches from either side of the planks.

Slide the second 78-inch plank between the two 60-inch planks, parallel to the first 78-inch plank and 20 inches away from it. Place the plywood sheets down on top of the frame you’ve built, side by side, with their outer edges flush with the outer edges of the frame.

Turn down the plywood resting on the open side of the frame with some wood screws for each corner. Drive screws through the sheet and into the edge of the plank below. Attach the second sheet to the first with the help of your five hinges. Screw the hinges in place using the supplied screws.  Sand the outer faces of your king size platform bed using fine sandpaper. Paint or stain as desired.
