Best of PB #3: Platform Storage Bed for a College Dorm Room

Becky from Reinventing the Ordinary loved the look and functionality of a Pottery Barn storage bed for her daughter’s college room but needed a cheaper alternative. Surprisingly, college tuition doesn’t really leave an extra $1000 sitting in the bank for a bed! Becky created a fabulous $100 version with some beadboard, molding, and plywood that fit their needs (and budget) to perfection!
