Jennifer Aniston’s Sumptuous Bed: DIY Instructions Here

Architectural DigestWhen 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.

  1. What a wild goose chase. Exactly where are the drawings? It’s another waste of time with links that show same pic, same nowhere links.

    • Sorry about that! Somehow the images disappeared from AOL’s DIY Life site. So I dug them up off the Internet and put them right in the post. Thanks for pointing that out. Enjoy!

  2. The platform is nice, but could definitely cause some injuries.

  3. Nice bed, it’s so elegant.

  4. True mike, it looks nice at first glance but would get annoying after a while.

  5. I hear ya, Mike. Maybe it needs little running lights built into the perimeter that glow softly at night.

  6. Nice bed, but I would end up burning it after the 100th time I stubbed my toe in the dark.
