Modified Camp Loft Bed *Full Size*

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 11/29/2020 - 16:36

Our 10 year old daughter has a small room so we decided a loft bed would be ideal, as it would open up some needed floor space. However, spending $1000 on a loft bed from a store was inconceivable, so we were THRILLED to find this camp loft bed plan on Ana White!

My husband modified the plans to accommodate a full-size mattress, added two inches of height to the underside, and removed the stairs.

Cost of wood was just under $300 as prices are high in our area at the moment. Still far less than any store would offer a bed of this size and configuration, so still a win!

The build took two full weekends. He had to be able to disassemble the piece in the garage in order to take it upstairs to reassemble in her room.

It was painted white with Kilz Interior Sealer and Stain locker. It was a HIT and now our son wants one too! :) Great project that affords her SO much more floor space for her books and eventually a chair underneath.

How did you do the slats? I am trying to make an oversized loft bed and nervous about the supports for under the mattress
