DIY Bed Plans for Twin Beds, Murphy Beds, Storage Beds

Why spend a zillion dollars for a bed when there are free bed plans to build one? With plans for so many styles, including Murphy beds, Mission beds, sleigh beds, and more, there is a design for every decorating theme.

Building your own bed allows the freedom to use whatever wood and finish suits your home and lifestyle. When you use free bed plans, you have so many options on size and customization.

Add an edge of molding for a sophisticated look, or try your hand at a hand carved headboard center motif or a stenciled border to add an artistic flair.

Choose yellow pine for children; it is hard, yet easy to work with. Select Cherry or Oak for a master suite, and finish to full gloss or mellow satin sheen for a rich, elegant look.
