Attach the sideboards to the headboard and footboard using small screws and some wood adhesive, being careful not to crack the wood by using screws which are too big. Next we do the outer trims, which should again be cut using the same dimensions as the bed. Attach these to the bed frame. Now we move on to the slats which add stability to the bed. Cut a dozen of these pieces and attach them between the sideboards at regular even intervals. These can be screwed to the bed frame using small screws. If you have small joint cracks you can apply some of the filler/adhesive/spackle you bought to fill these in. Always perform a strength check at this point as any inherent weaknesses will be amplified at the finished stage by loose joints or cracked wood during the building process.
If we take a Queen-sized bed as standard, the dimensions measure eight by four feet. Take a piece of MDF and build the headboard first, this should measure four feet in width to match the bed frame, but the height is up to you, although we would suggest two to three feet in height. After you have your headboard it is time to build the sides and footboard, also by using MDF. Depending on the look of your bed, you could design the footboard along similar lines to the headboard dimension wise, as long as it also measures four feet in width. The sideboards should obviously be eight feet in length. By utilising a powered jigsaw, the above steps should be quick and painless and if you’re feeling fancy you can even cut the top and tail boards to include curved edges. Use your sand/emery paper or sanding machine to smooth out any rough edges.
Any room must have its very own centrepiece which becomes the focal point of all the other items inside that particular room. For a bedroom, the focal point should be the bed. What better way to emphasize a centrepiece than having an oversized one? The wooden material gives the bedroom a natural, warm, and a homey aura to the room. This aura is important to naturally induce sleep and provide a relaxing feel to the room. Not only does the wood manifest good aura, it also makes it easier to design the interior as wood fits perfectly with almost anything such as wooden cabinets, dressers, coffee tables, and chairs.
