Hello again readers!
Its been a while but I’ve got big news, the pizza bed stand is done!
In case you missed my previous blog posts, my main project here was to build a pizza bed stand. My bedroom has these really awkward corners that aren’t 90 degrees so I have an odd triangular gap behind my bed that my pillows always fall into. This inspired me to build a triangular bed stand to fill the space and since the bed stand would be a triangle it lent itself to be pizza themed.
So over the last couple weeks I’ve been hard at work building my pizza furniture. I was fortunate enough to be able to do it all at my parents house. When I started building I was able to find a ton of free scrap wood at my parents house and they even had saws for me to cut the wood. You can check them out right below this sentence.
My first step in the building process was to cut out a frame for the bed stand along with triangular covers for the top and bottom. Then I screwed and nailed everything together except one cover. In the photos below, you may notice how the wood is obviously different, so I applied a varnish to stain the wood and make everything look the same way.
After varnishing everything I painted. And I painted well. I applied several coats of yellow so that the color was consistent before adding red paint to make the pepperoni!
Notice the perspective of the pizza slices and how the kinda droop down like a really big slice would if you held by the crust.
Once I painted everything I moved onto the final steps. I cut down some wooden dowels and screwed those in to make legs for my bed stand. Now it can stand up on its own. Then I added the golden hinge to the outside with super glue. No screws, just super glue. It’s very nice. Check it out below!
The budget for this thing wasn’t too bad either. I got all the wood for free. I did the labor for free. So I only had to buy paint and varnish which came out to about $10!
Well folks, that’s my pizza bed stand. Hope you like it!
