When coming up with a design for this bed, we wanted it to be simple to build, good looking, and functional. So that is exactly what we came up with. For about $200 you can build this twin bed with tons of storage. Whether you choose to use only two drawers on one side or shorten the drawers to accommodate a night stand you’ll still have a ton of storage for all the things.
This twin bed is the perfect first bed for your little one but can be easily modified for any size mattress so anyone that needs a bed with tons of storage would be happy with this one.
