About This Project

This was a BIG project for me. I learned a lot along the way. I modified the plans from the fillman storage bed (twin size to queen size). For the most part the main changes I made were in the Headboard and footboard. I added the width to make them queen size. The bases for the drawers I kept the same size for the most part. I have all of my dimensions and notes written down and will come back and add those.

I shortened the height of both the headboard and footboard by a couple of inches which enabled me to get them both built using 1 sheet of wood. I used a combination of birch hardwood and pine.

This was my first time building anything with drawers... 12 drawers was a bit daunting too! But with much sweat and love I worked thru this. This was built for my son and he loves it! I did add knobs to the drawers and need to update a picture!

Overall I spent about $200 on my wood. $100 on the drawer slides. and I got 25 wood knobs that I stained to match online for about $1 each.

My son loved the bed. I did not permenately attach all the bed supports instead did the top middle and end pieces. the others just lay in place and can be removed easily and large totes can be stored beneath.

My son was moved into the bonus room and as you can see the ceilings are low. This bed eliminated the need for a dresser and as a bonus no toys can get under it!

I have more pix on my blog.

I spent about 10 days from start to finish. a few of those days I worked a lot, in between I had to tend to 3 kids and life and rest my sore arms LOL

I am also wondering if you

I am also wondering if you have gotten a chance to put up your dimentions for the queen bed. I would love to make one of these.
