This tour of how an old bathroom vanity was re purposed into a built in bed with underneath storage is an amazing way to frugally create a special place for a person to sleep. I wish this was a step by step tutorial but it does walk you through the concept which you could use to create your own. The collection of pictures show the process of the building of the built in bed.
The History of Built In Bed – A box-bed ( enclosed bed, built in bed) is a bed enclosed in furniture that looks like a cupboard, half-opened or not. The form originates in western European late medieval furniture. The box-bed is closed on all sides by panels of wood. One enters it by removing curtains, opening a door hinge or sliding doors on one or two slides. The bed is placed on short legs to prevent moisture due to a dirt floor.
