Gloria Harris-Anderson, great creative re-use of what you already had! We loved the storage under the bed (2 drawers high) for years because the bedrooms we had weren't big enough for much else after the king-sized bed. With this last move, the drawers have all kind of died and "hang" there instead of having support. Husband says he can fix it with new hardware pieces, but it's pretty low priority on his to-do list, and we now have 3 dressers for additional storage so it can wait. Under the bed and in the drooping drawers are still a great place to stash Christmas presents, though!

Great ideas, although if you live in earthquake country you may want to avoid books and other similar objects overhead ; )

slrslr - I bought two narrow three drawer chests instead of bedside cabinets when I bought my bedroom furniture. They are higher than bedside cabinets, give easier access for high beds and have plenty of storage. Works so well for me!
