Building a Queen Size Bed Frame

Homemade furniture can be cheaper and better made than store bought options

I just finished building a queen size bed frame. After looking at several furniture stores for bed frames, I decided to build my own. Furniture from the store is expensive, it is poorly made, and most of the pieces are currently on backorder. I’ve been thinking about building a bed frame for our cabin for a while now, so I figured now was the perfect time.

Materials and Cost

I went to Home Depot for all my materials. In all, I spent around $200. Some gift cards that I had brought the out-of-pocket cost down to about $60. Not bad for what will become a very sturdy, solid wood bed frame.

The material list wasn’t extensive. Some various cuts of common lumber, some mounting brackets, and hardware.

Time Frame

In all this project took me 3 evenings of work, so I’d guess it took maybe a total of 8 hours. I could have probably done it faster, but I wasn’t pressed for time, so I casually completed it as I had free time. Either way, it wasn’t that lengthy or difficult.

Tools

If you’ve never done a project like this before, then you will need to invest in some tools. Luckily, I already had everything that I needed, since I’ve done projects like this in the past. So, if there is a drawback, I’d say that it would be the upfront investment in tools and equipment to successfully complete a job like this.

Wrapping Up

Building a queen size bed frame proved to be a fun project. I saved a lot of money compared to anything that I could have bought at a store, and I built something that is extremely sturdy and that will last for years to come. If you are looking to save some money, have something of good quality, and have the satisfaction of doing a job for yourself, then you should give building some furniture a try.
