I’ve built a few of these Storage Platform beds, but most of the time I put pull out bins under the headboard. The bins have a lot of storage space but not always real practical. This time I put shelves for extra book storage.

Actually I built two. One was queen the other was full. One had 11 drawers for a pedestal, the other had 6 with doors on one side.

both are finished in black lacquer.

I finished these in February 2015

This has some serious storage. Gr8 build. Is your finish sprayed on or brushed? Thnx in advance.

Very nice. I would need a step stool to get in bed. :-)
