How To Make A DIY Plywood Couch Or Daybed
We are looking for a versatile piece of furniture that can serve as both a coach and a bed? A daybed might be just what you need! Daybeds come in a few different styles, but this DIY daybed from Manda McGrath of The Merry Thought is our favorite.
In setting mode, the daybed is cushioned with pillows that form the seatback, when it’s time to nap or go to bed for the night, remove the pads to reveal a generously sized 36-inch-wide bed.
We love how this daybed looks in both modes – it’s perfect for small apartments, studios, guest rooms, or home offices where you want to be able to work and relax.
How To Build A DIY Daybed
This daybed couch design is perfect if you’re looking for a simple, fast, and inexpensive couch to build. Most of it is made from 3/4-inch plywood, so there are fewer small pieces to assemble. The most challenging part of this project is ripping two-by-six boards into narrower boards. But once that’s done, it’s just a matter of making the large plywood pieces. This couch is perfect for anyone who wants a stylish and comfortable piece of furniture without spending much money or time.
How To Make A Couch Out Of Two Twin Beds
If you need a couch-conversion bed that’s large enough for a twin-size mattress, Glen Scott at DIY Creators designed one that slides out to the correct size.
Most of Glen’s creations have a clever twist, and the trick here is that the slats on one half of the bed and the slats on the couch side are interwoven. When meshed, the slats make a couch. Unmesh the slats to form the bed. It’s such an easy operation that accommodating guests will be no problem.
DIY Platform Sofa
Are you looking for a couch that can work both inside and outside your home? This do-it-yourself platform couch from Vintage Revivals is an excellent option. The cushions are easily removable and replaceable, making them perfect for use on your patio or deck. And the thin frame is less likely to collect water, so you don’t have to worry about it getting ruined in the rain. Plus, the maple frame looks right at home in any room of your house.
This Couch Is A Great Project For Anyone Who Wants To Build Their Own Furniture. With Some Basic Woodworking Skills, You Can Create A Beautiful And Sturdy Piece That Will Last For Years.
First of all, let’s talk about the flat base. This is one of the main reasons why platform couches are so popular. The cushions rest on a flat bottom, making them much easier to clean and maintain. Factory-built sofas often have sinuous upholstery coil springs, which can be a pain to deal with. By dispensing with the coils, you can make this into a much simpler project.
Another reason why platform couches are a great choice is that they’re easy to build. Mandi incorporates dowels for the legs, back, and arms, making it relatively easy to put together. And if you’re worried about water damage, don’t worry – there are two scoop-outs in the platform where Mandi adds nylon webbing. This helps with drainage and prevents any water damage from occurring.
So if you’re looking for an easy-to-build couch that’s easy to maintain and looks great, then consider getting a platform couch!
