building a bunk bed from an old wooden door.

When I met the white door the neighbor threw away, I immediately thought of an idea, so he took a shot the way I did. . . .
The space in my bedroom is definitely upscale, so I use the same format that Chinese and Japanese use;
Start building when you don\'t have space to build!
I have a small single mattress smaller than the standard single bed (
About 75 cm x 180 cm).
I want the bunk bed to be about 4 feet off the ground so the end of my couch can be placed under it.
After a lot of playing and tweaking, I came up with a plan to build two final frames for each end of the door, and then, the two supporting beams of the door extend vertically, finally, reinforce with some support around the legs.
So, it\'s time for work!
The first is the material.
Of course, this door requires 4 legs and will mimic a very high table in appearance.
This is the door itself, I cut about 15 cm from the bottom as my mattress is not as long as the door.
You can also see the frame I built with simple 2x2, 2x3 and 2x4 Wood.
You can also see two lengths of wood to provide a way to support the length.
This is the frame borrowed together and the door located at the top: the mattress will sit on it.
I keep the design simple, no guardrail (
I haven\'t fallen off the bed since I was about 4 years old! )
, Although you have to take the necessary precautions when you think it is appropriate, if you build this for the children, the guardrail is just a must.
OK, here\'s the space I\'m going to fill up with the new bunk beds: of course, directly under my UV graffiti wall :-
DI then assembled the entire arrangement in said space.
I then added reinforcements to the problematic weaknesses of the frame, which easily made the bed unstable.
Once installed, the door is screwed to the top of the frame and it is as strong as a stone!
Now with my little single mattress, a sheet, duvet and cushion, the bed is folded up nicely and out of the way.
I might add a small level 2 ladder to the end of the pillow, but for now, 1 feet from the couch is fine!
