If you’ve been looking to delve into the world of furniture building, here’s an easy beginner project for you! Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic loved the look of a chunky platform bed from West Elm and decided to build her own for her son’s room. It only cost $55 for a full size bed (any bed size can work!), and the plans can be easily modified for other sizes. Here’s what Ashley says: “I just love it so much and I’ve overheard our 11-year-old bragging to his friends (on a few occasions) that his mom built his bed – which is the best part for me.”
Ashley was inspired by the retired Camden Platform Bed from West Elm.
