Chairs up-cycled to guest bed

60,487 Views
I needed a bed for my guest room, but wanted to add some personality with it. I knew these thrift store chairs were perfect when I found them.
I cut some braces to screw on in order to make the headboard and footboard act as one unit.
I added a large L bracket to each chair to keep the boxspring in place.
One matching head board and footboard in a matter of minutes with very little cost.
Add a quilt and pillows and you have a cute bed f

    Perfect even for a kids bedroom. They r always wanting a change and this is inexpensive enough to do just that.

      @Julie Collier thats partly why I loved the idea of chairs, they can be changed if wanted pretty easy, and the chairs are multi-use. so if you get tired of them as the bed, you can use them for something else. and the braces and brackets did minimal damage to them.

    When I clicked on your post, I couldn't imagine how you possibly turned chairs into a bed. Now I see. :) It's so creative!

    I would have never thought to do that with chairs, how smart are you!

      @Lauri Black / Shabby 2 Uniquely Chic I honestly didn't think to use chairs either at first, and had some doubt about how it would look. I am glad I took the chance!
