Making your own queen size wood bed frame is a great way to upgrade your room without spending a lot of money. Bed frames marketed in furniture stores can be very valuable. With only a few pieces of wood and some common household tools, however, you can make a simple wooden frame from the bed in the country. The construction of a wooden frame of the double bed from scratch also allows you to customize with your choice of paint or wood stain.
Measure the mattress that will be stored on the bed frame. Queen size mattresses are usually around 6 1/2 feet in length and 5 feet in width. Use an electric saw to cut the lumber into two long side pieces and two pieces of the shorter ends according to your measurements from step 1. Place the pieces of wood on the floor so that they form a box. Use wood glue to join the pieces in each corner. Hold the ends together to hold them in place while the glue dries.
Cut three pieces of wood the same length as your end pieces to serve as supporting beams that prevent the mattress from sinking. Cut a plywood panel large enough to completely cover the structure of the bed. Apply a wood stain or paint. If you prefer an unfinished look, apply a layer of clear polyurethane sealant. This will protect the wood from moisture and help your bed frame last longer.
