Purple Loft Bed with Bookcases

March 9, 2011 |
posted by hfitz1
About This Project

Loft bed with two big bookcases underneath. We already had a desk, so I repainted that to match. My husband built the bed and I did the painting. My daughter picked the colors herself to match her bedroom and bedding. She even helped with the painting!

We built/painted all pieces first, sides, rails, ladder bookcases, then screwed it together in the bedroom.

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Pine

Fabulous!

First off, beautiful job! Love the color too - I'm a purple person. My biggest concern with this is making sure my niece (the other purple person in the family) doesn't see it - because if she does, I will be expected to build her one just like it! lol Thanks for sharing!

The road to success is always under construction.

What did it cost to build

What did it cost to build this bed? Did you prime then paint wit a semi-gloss?

Thanks.

I don't know exactly what it

I don't know exactly what it cost us total, but it was roughly $300. We kept forgetting stuff and running back out to the store. Plus, we already had the desk. I did not prime first, which was a mistake. I did two coats of paint but you can still see through some spots.

Where To Buy

Do you have any idea where I could buy a bed like this?

Sarah

Sarah, you can buy one at a furniture store but you're going to pay 600-1000 depending on the quality. You'll get a much better quality for cheaper if you build it from Ana's plans.
