I built this bed for my 4 year old son over the weekend....I'll admit to a LOT of help from his Mamaw and Pawpaw. We converted it to a full-size bed instead of a twin...simply so I didn't have to buy new mattresses. We LOVE the way it turned out and he thinks he's King of his own personal "castle". Thanks for the plans!
Built from Plan(s)
$57.00 for lumber plus cost of paint
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
All I used on the bed was a good coat of Kilz primer (since it was new wood that hasn't had anything on it) and followed it with Valspar Bistro White in a satin finish. I would have LOVED to stain it but, the walls are pretty dark and the white really helps to brighten up the room.
