Picture of Storage Cube Bed
I wanted to come up with a more practical way to store items in the bedroom, without losing what little room we already had.  I am also big into reusing items, and was able to recycle wooden shipping containers that were being thown away after one use, for this project.  This instructable can be built with minimal tools and skills.  I am a do-it-yourselfer with no carpentry training. 

NOTE:  This was made for a king size bed, and yeilded 16 storage cubes.

Step 1: Materials and Tools.

Picture of Materials and Tools.
Wooden boxes or other wood. Other materials needed were screws, felt, tacky glue, wood filler, wood shims, and fabric drawers.

Electric drill, drill bits, t square, rubber mallet, angle grinder/dremel tool,  and circular saw or jig saw.
 

This idea would work really well if you've got lots of unused storage room under the bed. Customising the whole thing makes it a lot easier to retrieve items that you're keeping under there too!
