Upholstered Platform Bed – Give your bedroom a truly unique look by creating an upholstered, platform bed frame. Adding upholstery to these low profile bed frames helps to add visual weight, giving the frame a stroke of color. While adding upholstery increases the style factor, the clean lines of the platform bed make it suitable for modern design. A project of upholstered bed frame allows you to create a personalized piece of furniture, making the bed focal point of the room.
Textured fabrics, especially those with sparkle, lend bedroom well to romantic areas. Measure the width and length of your upholstered platform bed mattress. Add 2 inches to each of those dimensions. Use these tight measures as guidelines for cutting 2-by-6 tables. Cut two boards equal to your adjusted width and two boards that match your adjusted length.
Place the boards together on the floor of a rectangular box spring. Place a thin amount of wood glue on the end of one of the tips of the correct width and join one of the longer boards to create a corner of the bed. Repeat the procedure at the remaining corners. Turn the upholstered platform bed frame so that the long sides are on the left and right. Install the nail Gun with 2-inch nails. Also, secure your corners by shooting three nails along each corner.
