Futon bunk bed – Futon bunk beds are among the most space-saving beds on the market today. A futon bunk bed is essentially a convertible sofa on the bottom and a full size bed on top. The top bunk is generally still in bed form all the time but can still be manipulated to take the couch form, if the user desires. This bed works well for children’s rooms, small rooms and small lofts or apartments
Choose two futon sets of the same size. Measure the length, width and thickness of each wood piece that makes up the headboard and footboard. Be sure to set the same size, particularly in width and thickness of the posts. Construct a headboard and footboard for futon bunk bed with timber. These will be located next to the existing headboards and footboards to provide further support. The posts should be no more than 7 meters high but wider and thicker than the original-up to twice as thick. Drill enough holes in the headboards and footboards related pieces together, but do not overdo it. Make sure you drill large enough holes for the bolts that came with the futon frame.

This is especially important for the upper bunk. This step is important to the overall project. Connect a ladder to access the top bunk. Secure it to the headboard or footboard with carpenter’s glue and nails.
