How to Make a Built in Bed Using Stock Kitchen Cabinets

We’re excited to say that our DIY built-in bed was published in the Fall 2017 edition of This Old House Magazine!!! It was also shared on their website here.

Hello, friends! Today, I’ll go over how we took a small dormer space in the upstairs bedroom and made it super functional by adding a built-in bed with tons of storage using kitchen cabinets and trundle drawers.

On top of that, we added texture, character, and coziness in this little nook with a rustic planked wall behind the bed and new lighting.

Next week, I get to show you the final reveal of Taylor’s Restoration Hardware inspired bedroom.

But first, let us rewind to see where we started before we added the built-in bed and rustic, planked wall.

And this is how the finished project turned out!

Let me tell you what we used to put it all together.
