Princess bed for my princesses

Newest Video! I love creating, here's what I'm up to!

After about a month of looking for a new bunk bed for my daughters and becoming more frustrated with every new search at the outrageous price and often cheap quality of what's available I decided to look to the web for inspiration to build one myself. It took a little while to work myself up to going for it but man am I glad I did. And I am even more glad I found Ana White's site almost immediately. Her incredibly well written and documented plan for this bed made it not only doable but incredibly fun for me. And it gave me the confidence to create a loft bed for my son from nothing but an idea and dream. Thanks a ton Ana!

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
Approximately $400 including paint and some specialty tools.
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
White board and 3/4" Plywood
Finish Used
I used a satin finish paint and the only advice I would offer would be to paint as many of the pieces before assembly as possible. This bed has a ton of little nooks and crannies and you'll save yourself a full day of painting if you don't have to try to get a tiny brush into every one.
