Hi there, we’ve been given this second hand bed base but would love to maybe update it in some way and was wondering if anyone has any experience with this? Initial thoughts were to put a bottom layer sheet over it but I think that could be quite old fashioned- I’ve also seen a beautiful DIY dowel bed head on this workshop so maybe could use that but any thoughts on changing the appearance of the base would be hugely appreciated!! Thanks (p.s in picture it’s the brown base at the bottom)
I'm sure our members will have plenty of great ideas for you. You might like to set the bedhead up on the base and take another photo so everyone has a better idea of what you're working with and what solutions they might work.
I like the idea of incorporating half doweling and have put together a rendering below. You could create a really neat floating bed design by utilising 285 x 19mm Pine and cladding the whole base.
Oh that’s such a great idea thanks Mitchel!!! We’re you visualising something like this picture? We were going to purchase a brand new bed base so to be able to up cycle this one would be great! And I’ll pop a photo of the bedhead tomorrow, thanks!!
Precisely like that, @Beebop123! I really like that floating design.
