Built this castle loft bed for my 2-year-old after seeing the plans and building the princess playhouse loft bed for my 4-year-old. Using stone textured paint worked well. Also, used an old slide a neighbor gave me. One change I made was that my wife really liked the toy chest stairs, so I made those again instead of the coves called for in the plans.
Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Construction grade pine and MDF
Dark grey primer, stone texture spray paint, light grey semi-gloss. It would have been extremely expensive to texture the whole bed, so only painted the towers and front panel. The dark grey primer makes the light grey paint 'pop' a bit more. The pictures are untouched since I had to reformat my machine, but in real life the color is pretty rich; for grey anyway.
