Bed blocks

Hello friends!

Today, I am having my handy husband tell us how he made bed blocks. When we first got married we wanted to buy bed blocks, but they only come in packs of 4 and we needed 5 for our queen sized bed. So, David made us some bed blocks! Now we can fit a couple of tupperware containers under our bed to help us organize our apartment.

These are made of 2x4's and plywood. Both can be found in a dumpster where they are building a house.

Cut the 2x4 into squares. Stack two blocks on top of each other. Screw them together. Cut the plywood into a strip that is a 1/2 an inch taller than your stacked 2x4's. Cut two sides that are the width of your blocks and the other two sides the width of your blocks plus two times the thickness of the plywood. Screw them on.

Thank you David!
I hope that you have all found this useful and will be able to organize a little bit better!
