My daughters bed was breaking and we decided that I would build her one with storage. I’m embarrassed to admit that I used a plan from Ana White as my starting point and changed it a bit.
This is a full sized length with a queen sized width to allow for a small step up into the bed. The 1/2 that is not shelves is storage and play space.

2 things I always forget that I need to remember for drawers – take off 1” for drawer slides and leave enough off the sides of the drawers for th to close easily. I was ok on the sides, but I had to remake all my drawers when I realized I forgot the slide space!

Thanks Charles! I knew it was going to be too tall for her, sons had to help my little munchkin out! Plus it’s great to sit with our feel over the edge and rest your feet there!

Nicely done. When I did my kitchen cabinets I made the same mistake on several of the drawers. My kids are adults but still living at home. Looking forward to the day they have their own places and I can make stuff for them again.

Very nice. Even though my princesses are gorwn and in college, I am saving this for grand-princesses one of these days in the future. Love the extra step in the drawer construction.

I like the storage/play area underneath. I may have to make this for my daughter.
