The hutch for the Hailey Storage Bed Collection. Plans show both full and twin sizes. Please note that this hutch is designed for a very tight fit around the bed, and you should measure your headboard and bed width before building to ensure enough space around the bed.

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
As with most storage, start by building a simple box. As this is fully framed with plywood on the back, if you have a nailer handy, go ahead and nail this one (with glue of course and 2" finish nails). You can also use screws. Adjust for square.
Now add the plywood back with 1 1/4" finish nails and glue.
Trim the front out as shown above with 1 1/4" finish nails and glue.
And now the sides.
If you are building a twin size, here are the dimensions. Make sure you measure your bed - as this is a very tight fit.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
