This piece rolls nicely underneath the Headboard Base for easy pull out but hidden storage! Simple to build and one on each side of the headboard base will give you a ton of extra storage for whatever you may need it for. Stuffed animals, laundry, other random things that don’t have a home…this is the solution for them, and is a fun addition to our Stuff your Stuff Collection!

Instructions

Before beginning to build, always check in on my site to make sure you have the most up to date set of plans, I occasionally update and change the plans to make the building process easier or to allow for less expensive purchasing of materials! Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save plans, be sure to check in on my site to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans, as I occasionally update things for ease of building or buying. If you are new to building, read through the GETTING STARTED section and other articles found under the BUILD tab in the menu on my site, it has valuable information about how to get started, tools and techniques. If you are unfamiliar with the finishing process, visit my Finishing school for some tips and tricks for painting like a pro and for special finishing practices. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using, or contact me via email or post to the forum before you move ahead.

Step 1

Build the Structure: Cut or Carve out the Handle Holds, they are approximately 4” in diameter half circles, but you can adjust this as needed. Fasten your front and back (yellow) to the sides (blue) using your Kreg Jig set for 3/4” stock and your 1 1/4” pocket hole screws and glue.

Step 2

Fasten the Bottom in Place: Use 1 1/4” Pocket hole screws and glue to fasten the bottom inset and up about 3/4” from the bottom edges of the box. This gives you a bit of room to hide the casters a tiny bit. Then simply follow the directions on your particular casters and fasten them in place accordingly.
