Pottery Barn Knockoff Bed

Friday, February 10

Pin It


I loved this Pottery Barn Platform Bed
for my daughter away at college ...
but the price tag for a Full Size .... $999...


so I hopped on over to Home Depot ...
***where I spend wayyyyy to much time***
to the DIY Section ... well it's all DIY at the Depot.


A little  BEADBOARD ... some  MOLDING ... add some  PLYWOOD ...
and I was back in the truck.

I made the base in  3 rectangular cubes ... 2 for the sides ...
1 to go across at the end. 
They were all basically the same.
Having them in 3 sections would make it easier for her to move,

 The  sections were basically three sided  with molding attached in the front ...
beadboard added  on the sides that showed
The front being left open to slide in the storage cubes.


Voila!
A not-so-bad knockoff of the pricey Pottery Barn version.
I loved the baskets in the PB bed ... but again ... to save money ...
we went with the fabric cubes from Target.

In her small room ... this really gave her tons of storage.


Do you like the  Peace Sign and the  KAI?  Decided to cut those out
of thin plywood ... and throw them into the mix.  I love retro ... though it kinda sucks ...
that  I am retro.  Actually retro sounds better than old.




I loved the Target bedding.  The purple was a nice accent.
She wanted me to add this headboard ...  I'll hopefully go
into that in a future post.  Since it was an after thought ... I just went
plain black with pearl buttons ... but it would go through a few
transformations in the future.


So there you have it.
  My ripoff er....Pottery Barn knockoff.

PB price $999 ... without the baskets.
Mom's price ... with the cubes ...$100.
*** Well actually free to my sweet Complicated Kai ***

I really LOVE this and want to do it for my daughter's room which we are about to redecorate. Any chance you have pictures before you put the mattress on the frame you made? I am having a hard time visualizing what you did exactly. Can't wait to see you headboard post too. :-)

Jamie said...

Yes, I agree with melissa. Can you please post a pic without the mattress? What supports the mattress?

What size mattress is this? I'm trying to figure out measurements and plans for a King bed like this because I absolutely love it!!

Christy Adair said...

My husband and I love this bed, and we are moving so we decided to make it. We didn't have any supplies (except the tools). For the queen size (from your other post) the supplies including trim were $225. Thanks for the great idea!
