Twin to queen bed
Jaime turns twins into a queen.
“I turned two Tolga bed frames into a queen size platform bed. I wanted a platform bed and really liked the simple, modern style of Ikea’s Tolga, but it is only sold in twin size! I also liked these because they are made with steel truss which is very sturdy and also made with a renewable resource – pine slats. Oh, yah, and it was cheap! I hit Ikea at a sale time and spent well under $70 for both. The conversion was very simple. I cut one of the beds in half with a rip-saw, lined up one of the halves to a whole and then screwed down some plywood on top with a drill. Yay, for muh new bed!”
