My queen sized mattress sits atop a captains bed, with 6 drawers on either sides. They are jam packed with clothes, and I'm pretty sure I only wear about 17% of the clothes that are in there.
Drawers under the bed are a major space saver -- something I desperately needed when I moved to this apartment. I found the bed base on Craigslist in NY and bought it off a sweet couple for $100. An absolutely excellent find.
