Closet into a Wooden Loft Bed Full Size
Wooden loft bed full size – Building a wooden loft bed full size in a closet is actually easier than building a standard loft bed. The walls in the closet generate support for your sleeping platform, providing a very stable and secure bedroom. The main problem with a cabinet ceiling bed is that most closets are less than two mattresses themselves. This design solves the problem by installing foam mattress on top of your sleeping platform, but you can spring for a custom mattress or camping pad, if you prefer.
How to convert a closet into a wooden loft bed full size, measure the width and depth of your closet. Cut the plywood to match the dimensions of the cabinet. And then cut two beams corresponding to the depth of your closet. Then cut the second beam to a length equal to the width of your closet, minus 3 inches. Measure and mark a level line at the height you want to install your bed. Four feet is a height that provides an easy climb in bed, adequate headroom above and considerable storage space below.
After that to convert a closet into a wooden loft bed full size, Set one of the short beams in position against a side wall of your closet. Secure it in place with two wood screws at each end. Space the screws vertically, 1 inch apart, and allow them to bite into the wall studs in the corners. To install the other short beam on the other side wall. Find and mark the positions of all wall studs along the back closet wall. Add the egg crate foam on top of the plywood sheets. Staple it in place with a line of staples along each edge and a line down the center. Use a staple for every 9 inches of foam, driving staples in dimples, not the bumps. Push the sleeping platform in place, foam up.
