Full Size Hailey Storage Bed
About This Project

Built the Hailey Storage Bed as a full sized bed. I used paneling on the head board and foot board for more detail as well as adding quarter round where the paneling meets the trim. I also added an extra header on the head and foot board and added 6 inches to the foot board.

Estimated Cost: 
$130
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Select pine and poplar.
Finish Used: 
Semi-gloss white paint.

Would you be able to provide

Would you be able to provide me with the measurement for this bed? I know there is one for a twin but I am not very good at measurements and would need to adjust to fit my full size mattress. If you have the measurements I would appreciate. I do not need headboard or footboard as i will be doing something different. Thank you

The height of my headboard is

The height of my headboard is 49". The height of my foot board is 24 3/4". The total width of the bed is 54". This width stays the same from the headboard, to the distance from the outside edge of the bench to the opposite outside edge, and to the foot board--all measure 54" wide.

From a twin to a full you

From a twin to a full you need to add 15". Just add that to all your width measurements. The total width of the bed should equal 54".

Looks fantastic! Thanks for

Looks fantastic! Thanks for posting your results!

I have a few questions, if you'd indulge me.

Is this the Hailey Bed?

Did you lengthen the height of the footboard?

Are you able to get this in and out of a standard bedroom door?

In the end, would staining this bed be an option? Or is there exposed particle board?

thank you!

Yes, it's the Hailey Storage

Yes, it's the Hailey Storage Bed. I increased the foot board height by 6 inches. You would have to disassemble the bed to move it out of a room. There is no exposed particle board in mine. Just use nice wood and it could be stained.

sorry, I keep admiring your

sorry, I keep admiring your job, the finishing touches make this look like a piece from a professional store.

How do you find your white finish holding up? I'm always concerned my little girl is going ruin anything white.

It's fine :) Glad you like

It's fine :) Glad you like it!

I just used Behr ultra white semi-gloss water based latex paint. I started off with a cheap flat white paint since it absorbs into the bare wood so much. Then I think I did 2 coats of the semi-gloss. There aren't any chips or scratches in the paint so far and she's been in it over a year. I have a step stool beside the bed (that's on here too-it's pink) so she's not really scraping the sides of the bed to get in. She really only sleeps in it so it doesn't get rough-housed on too much. You can just wipe it with a wet washcloth to get dirt or food off.

Good luck and I'm happy to answer any other questions you have.

Hailey Bed

I love this idea, it's very pretty, professional and functional. I'm hoping we can get moving on this in the next few weeks after we've moved into our new home. Please send me any further information/dimensions, etc. for the full size bed. Thanks and congratulations on your success!!
