This is a bed for my younger son, currently 3. It’s finished to match a bed on the other side of the room which is AWESOME but I haven’t posted it yet here.
This one is built to slide in under the windowsill at the head, overhangs the baseboard on the side, and has a storage box to fill the space to the closet. It’s got (from head to foot) a “secret” storage cubby, two large full-extension drawers that I’m constantly yelling about not standing in, and a toy-, or actually right now shoe-, box.
There’s sides to keep my son from rolling out, which he’s prone to do. The whole thing is sized to hold an Ikea mattress (which is narrow like a crib mattress, but longer).
Not much to say about the construction on this one; it’s all pretty standard plywood dados. I’m pretty pleased though with how I got the reveal to match on the side of the bed between the door, drawers, and box side.
