Plywood (or any sturdy material that can be cut into a slide)
Ruler or measuring tape
Circular saw (or jigsaw)
High-grit sandpaper (optional)
Stain or paint (optional)
Step One: Measure the Width and Length of Your Bed Frame
To make your bed slide, you will first need to measure the width and length of your bed frame. This information will be used to determine the size of your slide. Be sure to account for any rails or boards that may extend beyond the sides of your bed frame.
Step Two: Cut the Plywood into a Slide Shape
Once you have measured the dimensions of your bed frame, use a circular saw or jigsaw to cut the plywood into a slide shape. Be sure to make the slide slightly smaller than the actual size of your bed frame so that it will fit snugly. If needed, you can also use high-grit sandpaper to smooth out any rough edges.
Step Three: Attach the Slide to Your Bed Frame
Next, using screws or nails, attach the slide securely to your bed frame. Be sure to place it in the center of your bed for stability.
Step Four: Decorate and Enjoy
Now that your slide is complete, it’s time to decorate and enjoy! You can paint or stain the plywood to match your bedroom décor, or you can add some fun stickers or designs. And don’t forget to have a blast sliding down.
This is an easy and inexpensive project that can be completed in just a few hours. Be sure to measure the dimensions of your bed frame before cutting the plywood, and use screws or nails to attach the slide securely to your bed frame. You can then decorate and enjoy.
