I've been looking at bed frames that have storage underneath them. Since we have neither an attic nor a basement, places to store stuff need to be creative and created. IKEA has some nifty examples but I was hesitant to spend the money - especially as Chris could build us whatever we needed. But building stuff takes time and materials and he is short on both (the darn lumber won't be dry until next summer and he has many other projects that have a higher priority).
Family to the rescue! We were offered a storage bed frame to a waterbed that was no longer wanted. Woot! I, of course, had to make it more my own - so I sanded it down and painted it dark purple.
