About This Project


My niece wanted the purple AG loft bed for her doll. Since, the one online is $225 and back ordered until December...I came up with this one for free! I used scrap wood and fabric that I had left over from other projects. The bed has a built in desk top, shelves, cubbies, ladder, bulletin board, and coat hooks. It took me a couple of hours to build the bed and the chair and about an hour to sew the comforter and pillows. The painting took a little longer because I was out of purple spray paint! grrrrrrr!

Required Skill Level:

Kilz primer first and then, I mixed a dark purple gloss with some white to get the lavender colored paint.


I am learning sketch up, now. As soon as I tackle it, I will get the plans up! Thank you for the kind words!


Do you have a time frame when you plan to post your plans? My daughter wants one of these for Christmas and was going to get started trying to reverse engineer based on photos. Then decided to check internet and found this! Would love to get plans do not care if scanned pieces of paper. Thank you!
