This project was so much easier than I thought it would be when we started. If you follow ana's plans your bunkbed will be much stronger than anything you can buy for a fraction of the price. I would never do it but I honestly think I could park my truck on these beds. The finish is red mahogany stain with a couple coats of polyurethane over it. They say not to use dark stain over pine because of the uneven coat but i like the way it striped the grain. Not everyone's cup of tea but we love it.
We've all heard the saying "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for life. Thank You Ana for teaching me to fish. This was the first, but will not be the last project i do from your site.
love the fact its twin over full!!! Looks fantastic and made to last hopefully til they are ready for separate rooms!!
my son-in-law made a set of bunks similar for my grandsons...he said it was worth the weekend after looking at the prices of store brand and how shoddy they were made..
