One of the most important furniture elements in your master bedroom definitely is a bed. This time I decided to build a bed frame by my own.
Last year we bought four mattress and used them in old single beds. I decided to combine them and build a King or at least a Queen Size bed. To accomplish this task I studied a few tutorials, see 21 DIY Bed Frame Projects – Sleep in Style and Comfort.
I ordered planks from local carpentry, the total cost for such bed about EUR 30.
Single Bed Frames
To free up the space in the room I had to take those two out and put them in front of the house. A tripod (in background) is a must have for a decent photography.
I have four supportive corner beams (15cmx15xm) approximate 60cm height. The carpenter dude already did cuts in beams where to attach supportive planks.

Adding nice finishing. Remember the tripod from the first image? Very nice way to make self-portraits (timer)
Installing bed frame
The bottom line of mattress are about 36cm from floor (why 36cm? I have no clue, just wanted to make it 36cm)
I decided to drill small holes for screw heads.

It took me about 4 hours to build this King Size bed frame and cost just about EUR 30 - one of the best investments for this Summer.
