I was in Franklin, TN, last week playing tourist, and I popped in to check out the shops at The Factory on the edge of town. Hanging in the “hallway” was this fantastic hanging bed!
Although I didn’t take measurements or look closely at the construction, it looks as though they used a full-sized headboard for the back of the piece, cut the footboard in half for the sides, and used the bed’s side rails to construct a space for the crib-sized mattress. I didn’t check underneath to see what they used for the platform, but I’m sure it’s nothing fancy.
What a cute way to repurpose something old, while creating a great suspended bed/seat/swing! It could be a great reading nook in an enclosed porch or bedroom.
A quick search of the internet revealed no detailed instructions for a piece like this, although it would seem as though someone must have them posted somewhere. If you find them, please post a link and I will update the post to share them with everyone!Pin It
