Pretty in Pink {Pottery Barn knock off bed} The Reveal!!

By Pinktoesandpowertools | Home Organization

Are you a fan of tons of storage and a place for everything and everything in its place?  Then you are going to love this DIY Pottery Barn Stratton knock off bed inspired by Pottery Barn’s Stratton Bed.

I love it.  I can’t believe I made it!!  The drawers work.  It is the right size.  All the stuff I worried about before I started turned out fine.  It isn’t perfect, but remember my motto: Perfect is the enemy of done.  And it’s done!

Storage Bed with Drawers

This is what she was sleeping on before so the bed has really elevated the decor in her room!


I am so happy with the results!  I had originally asked one my sons if he might want a storage bed for his room.  He declined at the time, saying he didn’t think he’d want one of those.  Today after he saw PIP’s (Pretty In Pink’s–daughter 🙂 ) he came up to me and said he thought one of those might be nice to have in his room.

Now that’s success.

I still have quite a few project left in this room.  I’m going to transform the plain-jane dresser into something more interesting, build a bedside table, put up some curtains, paint her desk and add a hutch, put up some floating shelves, and build a closet organizer.  It may have been a mistake to list all that is left to do yet–I don’t think I realized how much more there was to go until I just did that!

But it is going to look so different in there–picturing the end result keeps me going 😉
