DIY Hanging Bed

Hanging Bed

Who hasn’t enjoyed a lazy summer nap on a porch swing or in a backyard hammock?

If only you could only re-create that easy, sweet, lazy feeling in your own bedroom.

Well, if you want to wake up to the reality of a hanging bed, this is definitely a project for you!

This bed is most especially great for the kids bedroom. Its cables can carry up to 1500 lbs each. And with a hanging system similar to that of a bungee system, this bed is 100% safe to sleep on!
