Topic tags/keywords: bed

Greetings—Looking for information, plans, etc. (for free or for purchase) on making a California-King four-poster bed. Something like here: http://www.potterybarn.com/products/farmhouse-canopy-bed/popup/more-views.html but with the bottom being a platform bed with drawers (probably six to a side.)

Any ideas?

It seems like you could get enough info of off that site to design your own in sketch up. They have the dimensions, tons of pictures, etc…. Granted I don’t have a creative bone in my body, so I have to rely heavily on plans, but it seems this info below is basically a plan w/o step by step directions. Good luck!
