Storage Bed with attached Night Stands

The evolution, I built another storage bed, but corrected a problem I recognized the last time I built this bed and sold it with a set of night stands. Namely, if the night stands are next to the bed, you can't open the rear drawer. So here the night stands rest on one leg, placed just behind the rear-most drawer guide, thus allowing the drawer to slide right under the night stand. My friend Nate came up with the shape of the leg (thanks Nate!). Ryan took the pictures (there's a link to his site somewhere down the page here.


  1. is this a project or do you make custom furniture?

    looks really great!

  2. Pete,
    I love checking out the stuff you build and post on here, brother. I've seen Eric's wall/shelves multiple times and I'm always so amazed at how well they turned out both aesthetically and practically. The design of these nightstands is pretty bitchen'.

  3. Thanks Elijah, I really appreciate that. I'm glad you're digging on the night stands, I took a bit of a gamble on that. Good luck with the new blog!

  4. I like the nightstands a bunch. I think I side with Jana in that I would like the open space rather then the drawers. Stuff looks great though. I like to see the evolution of this bed. Change it again!
