Simple Bunk bed with a triple twist and cubby steps.

Submitted by Jason_NJ on Fri, 05/11/2012 - 11:29

I'm a father of 4 girls ages 6,5,4, and 1. So a regular bunk wasn't enough so I decided to add the 3rd bunk. Each painted in my girls favorite colors. The paint was Martha Stewart signature paint which was on clearance on Lowes. Think it was 3 or 4 dollars a quart. The cubby steps are basically just 4 boxes stacked on top of each other and nailed together and made from 3/4" furniture grade plywood.

It didn't come out perfect but I'm pretty happy with the results. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.

PS, wife is a big fan of yours. She's the one who turned me onto your site.

We are looking to build something very similar, but are needing more information. How did you attach the loft bed to the top bunk bed? What do you have at the foot of the loft bed to keep it up? Thanks so much for any information.
