When Jennifer Aniston’s home turned up in Architectural Digest last month, the bed in the master bedroom really caught my eye. As you can see above, it’s an oversized platform with two “ears” for low-slung night stands.
I can imagine one of those ultra-comfortable memory foam mattresses sitting atop this platform. It’s just too yummy.
Best of all, you could actually make this bed yourself with a few tools and a little skill. I asked nationally known carpentry guru Gary Katz of This Is Carpentry for some tips, and he went ahead and drew the whole DIY process out for us.
“This bed design is a great one,” says Katz. “The bed seems to float above the floor, and the top of the bed floats above the bed frame. Both details are easy to accomplish,” he adds. “And the materials are simple to collect, too.” The dimensions shown here focus on a king-size mattress.
