How To Make a DIY Captain's Bed

Good Questions

Q: I love Ohdeedoh and have picked up some great suggestions from your readers. Wondering if you have space to put this question to them: How can I hack a captain's bed for my son? He's in a small bedroom (2.5 metres x 2 metres) which he will soon share with his little sister. If I could get the high boy out of there and move the drawers to under his bed it would save us a TON of space. Has anyone done this?
