How to build full bookcase bed. Measure the width of your bed frame to determine the minimum width for your bedside. Consider extending the width of the bookcase to your bedside table. Determine how high you want your bedspread based on the height of each shelf and the number of shelves you plan to include. Bookshelves usually are between 9 and 12 inches deep with each shelf space being at least 8 inches high. Cut a plywood panel to fit the width and height of your bookcase. This will be back aboard your bedside. Cut two 12-inch planks to fit the height of the main body and attach these boards to the sides of your panel with wooden straps and wooden screws. Measure and cut two 12-inch planks to fit the width between the two side boards. Attach these boards to the top and bottom of the plywood panel. This is the box frame of your bookcase bedspread.
Measure the inside width of your bedside frame. Cut 12-inch shelves for bookshelf shelves to fit inside the frame. You can attach shelves to the sides of your frame with L consoles. Apply decorative lists along the front shelf and bookcase frame. Run a string of thighs along the edge and attach trim with finishing nails. Gently slip the surface of your bookcase headboard and remove all grinding debris. Apply stains or primer and paint to your room’s interior. Find the rules in the wall behind the bed and fasten the wall hanger for the full bookcase bed to at least one stutter, preferably two. Wear gloves and goggles when cutting or handling wood.
