This bed for my grandson was built from clear white pine and plywood. The corner posts are made from 3 pieces to create the detail. Instead of regular drawers I made 3 bins with casters so they can be used for toys and/or storage. The bed rails have a stop for the bins to keep them even when closed. It was spray finished with dark blue semi-gloss paint. I’m currently finishing a matching 5 drawer dresser which I’ll post when completed.

Very nice. Do the drawers sit on the floor, its hard to tell but it looks like its riding above the carpet.

I like it!
Is it frame and panel construction or trimmed to look that way?
Thank you.

The “drawers” are boxes with castors so they can be moved around as toy boxes.

He does.

Its not frame and panel its just the trim.

Thanks for all the comments.
