Little Mancave for Noah

We absolutely LOVE this clubhouse bed. Not sure who loves it more, my litte boy or his parents! My husband has zero wood working skills, but his dad has a few wood working skills, so together they made this happen. We bought half of the lumber-cheapest whatever we could find, and my father -in-law bought the other half -the much more expensive stuff. We probably could have made this around $150-$200 using all the cheap stuff. We added a window box to hold little super heros and a shelf on the opposite window, we also added a shelf half way up on one of the post at the bottom to hold a lantern. We raised the bed 4 inches higher to give more room at the bottom. We used ply wood for the bottom of the bed rather than slats. We used a cherry 223 Minmax -1 coat and then put a clear coat on it.
