Purchase unfinished cubbies from a craft shop or an unfinished furniture store. The white twin platform bed shown above (double size) uses 6 double cubbies at a cost with AC Moore’s 50% coupon. Even at full price it would cost which is still lower than the price of most storage beds. Select finish. If you are looking for a natural look, you can easily sand the edges of cubbies and be done. If you choose color or bet, lightly sand the cubbies and apply two layers of your surface, making the target to dry between the rocks.

Configure the layout on the white twin platform bed so that the cubbies form a rectangle sized mattress. At the base and head of the rectangle, you need a cubby plus side of another cubby (the picture here shows the base of the bed). You need two cubbies for each side of the rectangle. If you use a box spring, place it on the cubbies then laid the mattress. If you choose to use only a mattress, you might want to add two more cubbies in the middle of the layout to provide stability to the mattress. Because you will not see these cubbies, you do not have to paint or color them. Purchase baskets to keep everything in place. Be creative with your colors, bedding and baskets. Have fun!

Tips and warnings

If you build this platform bed for a toddler, it may be a good idea to anchor cubbies to each other (with screws) at the tip and foot end. Measure carefully before cutting to prevent mistakes and waste. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all tools and materials.
