These are some platform beds that were competed in October 2009. They both use full size mattresses, but the platform is about 75” wide. I made a row of cabinets to where they fit on the side of the bed and they fit on top of the platform.

I made the cabinets in 3 pieces, but where they appear as one. The dividing face frame hides the seam between the cabinets. The top is made in one piece to also make it look to be one piece.

One of the beds has a headboard where the other one doesn’t. They both go to the came customer, just one child choose to have a Media Stand instead of the headboard. The one with the headboard will have a frige in that open spot under the headboard.

These are some nice designs, Chris. It is amazing how many different looks you can create with the same basic design.
