Expedit Queen Platform bed





Materials: Expedit

Description: We were inspired by other Expedit bed hacks, specifically this one and decided to make a Queen Platform bed. My daughter moved into an apartment and we needed to have more storage as well as a nice size bed.

We were very excited that we (two females without any experience) could create this bed. We used 2 1×5 bookcases, 1 1×2, and 2 1×1 bookcases so that we can get as close to a queen size (60×80) as possible. We attached a continuous hinge to the 2 pieces of 60×40 plywood, so that she can have storage under the bed as well. A black piece of fabric was used to cover the plywood. and we used a 4x4x12 but into 8 17.6 inches, which we used support posts. We used brackets and 3/4 size screws to attach the posts to the plywood.

I think that’s it.. enjoy
