  1. Use 2 Lacks then, but I’d use Expedits so there would be storage.

    If the 2×4′s are connected to the wall studs with, say, 4″ screws there will be no “couple” issues with this design. The wall will fall down before the bed.

    This is the best one yet for my bed needs, but I’m not quite sure how it’s attached to the wall and held up – or, as everybody else is saying, how sturdy it’d be for…couples.

  5. Cotton,

    What did you use to re-enforce the sofa table? Ikea says its maximum load is 44lb (20kg).
