After the move, my teenage boys ended up with room for bigger beds. I was thrilled to be able to get rid of the too small twin beds until I started pricing the cost of new queen sized beds and dressers. My budget simply could not accomodate the expense. What to do? Get creative and crafty, of course. I found this DIY queen sized storage bed, which allowed me to avoid buying or making dressers to store their clothes. This was the perfect solution since we have a closet for hanging clothes and did not really need or want a huge dresser, much less two of them. We use the storage drawers for their winter things and sports equipment as well as some blankets and pillows for the unexpected sleepover guest.
