Under Bed Storage

Just replaced my hand made platform bed for a new metal frame bed, but oh no we don't have any storage under the bed now.
I glad I kept a couple of old drawers in my loft.
Now all I need is a frame.

Step 1: The Frame

Picture of The Frame
What I needed was a drawer frame.
To make it I cut out 2 x side panels, 4 x cross rails and 4 x drawer slides.

Step 2: Cut and Paint

Picture of Cut and Paint
The frame, drawer fronts and the cross rails have to be painted.
I made some Oatmeal and raisin cookies between coats of paint,
from a recipe I saw on this site. Yum.

Step 3: Hang em high make em dry

I screwed small brass hooks into the rails, so that I could hang them up to dry between coats.

Step 4: Glue and screw
