After I moved to Chicago, I had a few days to settle down before I started my first job at Motorola Mobility. I decided to make my own bed. It’s the first time I make a piece of furniture (though not the imaginative ones I dreamed of), and also my first instructables project, following aeray’s wonderful instructions.
I used the home depot bricks to stack the frame up, which I later raised to fit more boxes under.
After the bed is set, I bought a used door frame, bolted it down to the wooden workhorse left from bed project, and made my dining table. Zero waste! Mind you though, this is still more expensive than Ikea.
The door frame is covered with wood floor, unintentionally giving it an expensive solid-wood-blocks-glued-together look. Lock hole now works as a candle holder.
One shortcoming of making furniture at home is, none of these objects will fit through the door when I’m moving out of the place. Oh well.
