This is a bed that was designed and built for storage needs. The pedestal features 12 large drawers They are 18×18. I utilized as much of the depth as possible. The headboard has two extra large roll out storage bins. In between the drawer units is storage from the foot to the head of the bed. If that wasn’t enough the headboard is extra deep and sliding doors can hid and cover stuff there too.
The sliding doors were made simply by cutting a groove at the same angle as the headboard sides. A piece of 1/4” material is attached to the back of the headboard (Unseen and attached before the headboard back is put on.)
The color was an custom mixed dye coat (brown with a little red), followed by Ebony wiping stain from Minwax. It was then top coated with a pre-catalyzed lacquer.
