Toddler Captains Bed

My wife wanted a dresser and a bed for our two year old foster daughter on her second birthday.  Since half the dresser drawers are not useful for a toddler I considered a Captain's Bed or Mate's bed but couldn't find one.  I modified the Traditional Wood Toddler Bed plan adding drawers underneath and painted it white.   My little girl loves it.   It turned out nice enough that my oldest daughter asked me to make another for my grandson since his convertible bed will be converted back to a crib with a new granddaughter on the way.  Her only request was to color it Espresso Brown.  I have included the picture.  Thank You for the ideas.   God Bless You and your faimily
