This entire set including a full / queen size convertible bed, dresser, tall chest, and 2 nightstands, were made for a 2 year old toddler for one of my clients. The style and design is custom and the color is a 3 color dye mix sprayed on in 5 toned coats to get consistent color on all pieces. The wood is poplar to help keep costs down but sturdy enough to last the abuse it will probably take!!
This bed is a custom Full / Queen convertible bed. It is made on a Queen size headboard and footboard framework. There are 2 sets of bed rail connectors on the bed, one outer and one inner. Currently it is configured for a full size since he is only 2 years old. When needed, you can place the second set of longer rails in the Queen connectors. I made a longer set of rails to accommodate the longer length of a queen size mattress and they have them in storage currently. The toddler’s initials are monogramed on the headboard as well. When not in use, the Queen connectors are covered with a piece of decorative wood. So as he grows up or moves away when he’s old enough, the bed can be configured into a queen size!!
The dresser is 66 inches long X 19 inches deep X 36 inches tall.
The two nightstands are 22 inches wide X 16 inches deep X 24 inches tall.
The tall chest of drawers is 36 inches wide X 60 inches tall X 19 inches deep.
All of the drawers feature dovetail drawers and steel ball bearing full extension drawer slides. The tall chest of drawers have an anti tipping wire attached to the back and into a wall stud to prevent tipping. This was a fun project to build and he’ll get a lifetime of use out of the set!!
