To do this, I had to remove the wheels from the bases. In this picture, you see me working on the black fabric that guards the bottom of the half bed base. This is to be totally removed.
Why? Well, when undertaking such tasks, I want to be as efficient as possible, as well as make it as easy to do as possible. I'm not a professional, so easy is best. By turning one half of the bed upside down, I can then lock both pieces together, only needing to remove the centre timbers to open up a huge space.
However, if I had left the wheels where they were, I would be fiddling around with some very stubborn material (its still on in this picture, and will remain so, as its stapled down, and those staples are resistant to my charm), and also the board of wood, as well as the centre timbers.
So much more work, as well as weakening the structure severely. You'll see it all come together though over the next few weeks, as I will make sure I take pictures and keep you all updated with posts, though I myself will not really be able to get back to you at the moment.
All comments will be replied to once internet is available in my house. So don't feel ignored. :)
