We have seen a lot of beds with storage space within them. This space can be increased if you have a bed on a raised platform.
Rather than having a small draw that can be pulled out, we can have a long draw with wheels on them to store our blankets for the season.
One thing to keep in your mind is that the area around the bed should be practically empty so that we can pull out the draw comfortably.

Winter and Christmas are so closely knitted together that we might never be able to talk about one without connecting the other.
Here’s a simple way to create your own wooden triangle blocks, liquid gold leaf, craft paints and brush. Paint the wooden blocks with one base touch and let dry.
Later, apply the next coat but on the top paint gold leaf caps to represent stars or snowcap. Leave it to dry completely.
On the dried block, add small golden dots with a pointed brush. Keep all the little trees together and show off your DIYing talents.
