Many homeowners overlook potential storage space beneath a bed. Even a twin bed 1 foot off the ground offers more than 30 cubic feet of potential storage. Disorganized under-bed storage often becomes chaotic, messy and hard to access. However, by building some under-bed storage drawers, you can make good use of that space. These directions apply to a twin bed that sits at least a foot off the floor, but you can use the basic plan for any size bed. Just alter the lumber dimensions to suit your needs.
Set up the four 9-inch-wide plywood sheets in a rectangle. The ends of the 35-inch long sheets should abut the inside faces of the 24-inch sheets. All four sheets should rest on the narrow, 1/2-inch thick edge. Glue them together and allow them to dry.
Nail the plywood sheet in place with one finishing nail per corner and three evenly spaced finishing nails along each side. All nails should be about 1/4 inch from the outside edge, placing them on center in the frame below.
Drill pilot holes in the stamp-inked outlines left behind, using a drill bit the same diameter as the screws that came with your cabinet pull.
