Storage Bedframe

I used pine for the 2x6's and 2x4's (and 1x3's) and fir plywood for the headboard, footboard and drawers. I also modified the drawers and used a square piece of 3/4" plywood for the bottom - made it way easier to build the drawers square so they slide nicely!

The pulls are from Lee Valley.

I love how the storage drawers are off the floor. The finish looks great and the "in process" photos help a lot. Great Job!

The plans were great, but the drawers took FOR EVER to get them to slide properly. It is a very much recommended build if you live in a house like mine, with small bedrooms! (Yay older houses!)
