Build Padded Twins Beds

Posted on Twin Bed

Twins beds – To build padded twins beds is starting with cut a piece of plywood measuring 24 inches in length and 41 inches in width. Two, cut a piece of 1-inch Polster Foam the same dimensions as the plywood sheet. Depending on the size of the foam of foam, it may be necessary to cut several pieces to get the desired size. Three, place the plywood sheet on a flat work surface. Apply spray glue to plywood, stick the glue 6 inches over the plywood and pass it back and forth to get a thorough coating. Place foam on the plywood. Line up the edges so that they flush. Squeeze the foam into the glue and allow it to sit for 30 to 45 minutes. Fourth, cut a piece of fabric that measures 34-by- 51 inches.

Place the fabric face down on the twins beds work surface. Place foam-covered plywood on top of the fabric. Fifth, pull the fabric over the sides of the plywood. Staple the middle of the fabric to the back of the plywood. Do this with all four sides of plywood and pull over the rest of the fabric and staple it to the back of the plywood. Trim away excess fabric. Six, attach 4 picture hanging rings to the back of the plywood. Place each ring 2 inches below the top edge of the plywood. Secure them with 1-inch wood screws. Space the first two screws 2 inches in from the right and left edges. Place the other two screws 12 inches from the left and right rings.

Seven, pre-drill a pilot hole in the wall where you want to hang the headboard, 47 inches from the ground. Using a handheld drill is equipped with a 1/4 inch drill. Measure and drill another three pilot holes at the same distance as the rings on the plywood. Eight, insert a wall anchor into each of the preloaded holes by sliding the tip of the anchor into the hole until the other end flushes with the wall. Screw a 2-inch screw into each of the wall anchors. Twist until 1/2 inch of the screw stays outside the wall. Lift the headboard to the wall and slide the rings on the screws. Last, set a twins beds frame in front of the headboard. Place the box spring and mattress on the bed frame.
