DIY Platform Bed Modern Builds

I've built a couple of beds recently. The first was made out of plywood and featured a lot of pocket holes. After that build I wanted to balance it out with a project that didn't use either of those. I picked up some 1x2's, 1x4's, and 2x2's from home depot and built a simple, full sized bed that can be stained to match many different interior styles.

if you plan on building the bved for a different size mattress, just google the standard mattress dimension for what you have and adjust the dimensions from there. Thanks!
