Chest of drawers to a bed
Materials: 4 drawer Malm x 2 and a saw
Moved house and needed a new single bed.
Removed the draws measured 20″ from the top down to the base of the second front cross piece.
Mark and saw in half….same again to the second set of draws.
Screw them all together make a new top (making the bed base) for the lower halves add an 8″ by 37″ shelf to the bottom replace the draws and you have lots of storage and a single bed base new mattress = a comfy single bed.
We will use the remaining draw fronts to make open shelves in the same bedroom.
All will be primed and painted white.
