This is a platform bed was built to match a customer’s existing furniture. We built the bed only without a headboard. It is our standard Captain's Pedestal with a slight modification at the drawers closer to the foot. We combined the smaller drawer into one big drawer.

We also added a 5’ long drawer that pulls out of the foot, between the drawer cabinets. This is great for seasonal stuff.

I have never seen a bed as multi-functional as this.
Great job!

Thanks everyone.

I’ve never thought about it but I guess it could be a base of a bunk.
