DIY Hanging Bed from 2×4’s


Hanging bed with 2x4 lumber ana white daybed

My Daughter wanted to have a hanging daybed in her room so she could have a chill out area underneath and also a sleepover space for when friends came over.

We got the hanging bed plans/idea from Pinterest and ended up on using Ana White’s Hanging daybed Plan (Ummm …seriously, she’s a rockstar, I’ve done nearly 10 of her plans now)…

I requested that she help build it, so off to the local Home Depot to get the Supplies! Perfect opportunity to learn how to find straight lumber! checking for straight lumber hanging daybed

The two of us managed to get the bed hung and level with the help of some ladders and leveraging the ropes. It was SOOOO heavy!!! I used twice the recommended lag bolts into the walls, (paranoid mom here) and the bed ended up SUPER solid!

Super easy plan, would be GREAT for a first time project!

Happy Diy’ing!
