The space is also going to be used as a guest room, and we have a twin sized bed in there . . .
I wanted to figure out a way to turn this space into another work surface. Since the headboard and footboard are the same height, I figured that if we made some kind of platform that just sat on top of the headboard and footboard I would be able to work on it, and then when we had guests and needed the bed we could lift the work surface off.
Are you ready . . . here is what this bed looks like now!
Yes, I have already started to pile stuff on the work surface, but hey, that is what it is for!
Here is a close up of the end so you can see how it just sits on top. I need to add some felt to the underneath so it does not scratch the bed frame at all. Since it just sits on top we can remove it when we need the bed and we did not have permanently attach it to the bed.
He added supports underneath also so that I can set heavier things, like my Circut, on the surface also. I am looking forward to the long Thanksgiving weekend so I can spend a lot of time in this new craft space!
