Materials and Tools:

door
glass
circular saw
2"x4" lumber
sandpaper
stain

Cutting Down the Door:

1. Cut the door down to the desired size using a circular saw. The mirrored section measures 5' x 8" with an additional five inches on one side and 11 inches on the other.

2. The door will extend two inches beyond the mirror on either side.

Tip: In order to make sure that the mirror does not extend to the cut area, drill a hole one inch from the edge, and then two inches and so on.

3. Clean up the door, and then sand out any scratches and rough edges.

4. Cut one 2 x 4 to 54 inches, then rip to the width of the door—1 3/4 inches.

5. Cut two 2 x 4 to 25 inches.

6. Build the shelf base. Attach the 25 inch 2 x 4's to the 54 inch pieces at each side and middle.

7. Stain all of the pieces.

8. Screw the shelf base to the door.

Installation:

1. Find and mark the studs in the wall.

2. Determine the placement of the bed.

3. Toenail the door into the studs in the wall.

4. Touch up as needed.
