A diy day bed for the kids or that corner that needs a little something.
Sweet Little Day Bed
Drill 2” screws
plywood cut off piece (5/8 thickness) is what I used
dowel 1 1/2 -2”
saw to cut the dowels 6 @6” or as many as you need for your size of plywood
Measure out where you’d like the dowels. 3 “ in from the long side and 5” in from the short side, two dowels in the middle and 2 on both sides front and back. If you used more than 6 measure accordingly! These are your support so you don’t want to much space in-between each dowel.
Find your center point of where you measured and screw in the screws till barely through and put the center of the dowel with some wood glue onto the screw and drill through the rest of it while holding onto the dowel! Do this 6 times or as many as you used for your platform
While the dowels are drying decide on color or not! I left mine raw wood and sanded it till smooth.
Find some through pillows, blankets and a good book!!
