Floating platform bed – Floating shelves hide their support structure in a hollow in the shelf itself. This makes for a storage area with clean, modern lines. It seems that the same concept could be applied to a bed, making a modern look beyond the bedroom. Unfortunately, even a double bed with a child straining structural support for a classic floating shelf. But by adding removable supporting chains you can stay in shape on a floating shelf while adding stability when someone actually sleeping on the floating platform bed.

Place the second 39-inch beam to the other end of the 76-inch beam, which forms a C-shape. Screw it in place with two screws. Slide the remaining 76-inch beam in the middle between the two 39 inch beams. Screw that each beam with two screws.
Place a sheet of plywood on top of the frame, its edges flush with the frame. Screw it into place with a wood screw per corner. Turn the frame over.

Sand and paint all the outside faces of your floating platform bed. Let dry.
