Second, you can use the old crib mattress for a toddler bed. This will lessen the cost of your getting a new bed. You also wouldn’t have to buy new beddings for the new bed since old beddings on your crib mattress can also be used for this. However if the time comes that you need to buy new beddings, some stores have sizes only designed for particular beds. So instead of saving on beddings, it will even be more costly for you. Third, think of your toddler’s safety. Toddler beds are usually lower to the floor compared to the regular beds so it is a lot easier to get in and out of the bed. Railings also add security on the bed since this could prevent your toddler from falling off. Whereas if you will get a regular bed, you would still have to add railings on it so it would cost you additional bucks.
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.
The bedroom is the most important room in a house by Feng Shui criteria, and many articles expound on this topic. But the bed its self, apart from the bedroom, is the subject of much misinformation, so this article will attempt to cover some of the major concerns. The shape of the bed should be a stable square shape as most beds are. In the 1960’s there was a brief trend in having round beds (so Austin Powers!) Round beds are not practical and they do not provide a stable sleeping atmosphere. They make energy swirl, which might be okay for other activities besides sleeping. There is nothing inherently bad about a water bed, popularized also in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Since the water is totally sealed inside the bed, it would not even work as the water element if a room needed water present.
