Farmhouse Storage Bed

Submitted by abbpim on Thu, 09/13/2012 - 09:35

I made this farmhouse storage bed using three different plans! For the headboard and footboard I used the plans for the regular (with no storage) Farmhouse bed. For the storage and bed part I used the farmhouse storage bed plans. I also put the footboard on hinges so that I could access the huge amount of storage under the bed. I got that idea from someone else on here who posted it. Hers had a built in box below the footboard for storage but I just really like having the massive space under there. (My kids think its their fort!) We also put 2x2 kickstands on hinges on the sides behind the footboard so that we could stand the footboard as a table. (I really don't think that feature will get utilized but oh well)! I'm very happy with how this bed turned out! This is the coolest coolest bedroom set I've ever had and I paid the smallest amount for it!!! It blows my mind! I did not add drawers because I really like the open look better. Thanks for these plans Ana and anyone else whose I looked at!
