This is my first platform bed that I made for my step daughter who happens to love it! Her room used to be a pig sty, as teenagers rooms are, but it has remained clean since it was given to her 2 months ago. The headboard has 5 ‘holes’ in it for various things—books alarm clocks, etc and has 2 lights on either upper corners. The platform hangs over the base by about 8 inches, so things like shoes can be placed underneath. My wife had the idea of it and gave me the creative twist to do what I wanted with it. I couldn’t wait to start this project, even if it was built in the garage in the cold Michigan wintertime.
