Oops. Should have taken some pics before putting the mattress on and making the bed so you could see the nice book matched wooden platform, but we were too eager and wanted to see it made up.
This is the bed we had made in exchange for designing and making that website for the furniture designer. We basically told the guy what we wanted and he made it. Cool huh?!
It has four large drawers in a unit underneath the mattress platform (could stow the dogs in them and still have room for jumpers!) and then the head board conceals another cunning storage unit (seen in photo 5 modeled beautifully by yours truly). It also has a protruding shelf on each side for use as a bedside table, light stand, or in my case, a place for Ed to rest while I snooze. If I remember correctly, the finish is cherry, although the edges of the platform have been left unveneered so you can see the stripey layers of wood it’s made from. Mmmm.
As you can see, we love our new bed!
