This is a platform bed that I built with LOTS of drawers. It has a total of 18 drawers with a double door at the foot. I call this my Triple Tier Pedestal. These drawers are also deeper then most dressers. They are 18” compared to most dressers are usually about 14”.

We also added moldings to the drawer and door fronts and the side panels of the drawer unit. The finish is a white lacquer with a antiquing glaze.

I can just imagine my children crawling under there and playing! Nicely done. There’s never too much storage space.

Pete, I had something similar to that when I was a child and when I had to clean my room, everything went into the center.

Chris – Very nice! You have given me the solution to closing in my new Sleep Number bed … not as many drawers of course. Question … I see in photo number two that you have your pedestal a substantial distance from the wall at the head. Why is this? In my house that space would be full of cats!

Ron, the space comes from how we made Waterbed pedestals many years ago. These drawer pedestals have have evolved from those. I haven’t been to quick to change it because it helps keep the cost down on shipping these, since they are not as long. I have had customers request it closed out because of that reason, dogs or cats.

Thanks, Chris! Keeping things off the wall like this would be good for all the stuff that comes with a Sleep Number … would just have to enclose it with a door or access panel. Thanks for the reply … and again, GREAT JOB!

But…...... How does it fold up on the wall? :>/

Nice Build. Don’t need a dresser with all those drawers. Great space saver.

Wow, very impressive. Gets rid of the dresser and more room for other things?
