This was my first real build!! I did it simultaneously with the elementary trestle desk, land of nod bookshelf, rolling cubbie stools and hanging bookshelf! My son wanted the ladder vs the steps and was thrilled with the hammock made out canvas drop cloths:) I made a simple bed box for chalk and cups of water at bedtime and just screwed it in to the top 2x4! the build was easy...however the assembly took my daughters help! It took me about 3 hours to build the bed and I stained it with general finishes java gel stain! It was so much fun and I am so addicted!! I will submit brag posts for the other builds soon!

What a lucky guy. All the builds came out fantastic and I love the added touch of the hammock. The post-it: priceless!

Does your bed wobble? I did not include the steps either but I am finding that the bed wobbles from the foot to the head board.
