Building a Grey Bedroom Bench is a simple craft project that you can finish in an afternoon. The benefits of having a bench in the bedroom include extra seating and leave storage, if you choose to attach the base of your bench. Add a thick pillow and some totally destroyed pillows for comfort or leave your bench elegant and simple; design your bench to complement the existing interior of your bedroom
Determine the length, width and depth of your Bedroom Bench based on the size of your bed and on your personal preferences. Create a material list, complete with specific dimensions. For a rectangular bench, you need two 2×4’s cut in lengths, two 2x4s cut to width. You can find trim for the sides of your bed bench in the aisle with other decorative moldings. Your local home improvement store will often cut the material to size for you at no additional cost. It saves a lot of time and moves at home, so take advantage of this service.
Collect your materials and start building the frame for your Grey Bench by attaching two longest 2×4’s to two 2×4 cutouts for the sides of your bench frame with screws and a screwdriver. You will have a rectangle when you are done. Mount the 1-by-2 trim pieces or other strip that you chose in the outer edge of the bench frame, which borders the top. The casting contributes to the stability of your bed bench and provides a design interest. Set the screws from the inside of the bench to the outside so that they are invisible. Add support braces every 16 inches or so sideways over the beds head end bench.
