Instructables
Picture of King Size Storage Bed
Hi. This is my first attempt at woodworking and im glad that it worked great. Going low on budget I thought of making my own furniture instead of hiring a carpenter or buying a ready bed. I always loved to have things of my own specs and designs.
Instructables helped understanding the basics of a bed. Then I came up with my own designs.

Step 1: Sides and headboard

Step 2: Joining Sides

Nice work. :) Gotta love that mattress. :D

I'm about to build something similar except I will be utilising under bed plastic storage boxes that pull out for ease. Mind, looks like I will have a little more access than here so I can take advantage of it.

Regards, Maz.

I recognize this paper covering. It is sticky shelf self-stick paper from the Dollarama! 1$ a roll. Must have cost a small fortune to buy enough for the entire project, they don't include much on a roll.

This is really interesting. I would like to make one. I can easily follow the pictures, however, can you tell me what size wood, moulding, and plywood you used? 

Thank you for posting this, I can't wait to make one.

The bed looks nice! But more detailed instructions on how you pieced everything together would be beneficial to your readers. Also, where did you get that mattress?
Looks really nice.  I'm wondering if dresser drawers could be used turned on their sides...hmmm-wouldn't be as beautiful as yours, but might work well for a person with a small room and low budget.

...you could have just made this a slide show. as it is, there are no actual instructions for anything, just headings and pictures
