I made this bed for my daughter's birthday using poplar wood. Since I can only work at night after the kids are in bed I think it took me about 3 nights working an hour or two each night to build it and then a Saturday afternoon to finish it. I finished it using a Miniwax pre-stain, Miniwax English Chestnut stain, and then completed it with a couple coats of polyurethane.
She actually helped me at the end to stencil on the names of her dolls, a couple butterflies and a flower on the bottom of the top bunk so her baby had a pretty picture to look at while she slept :). She loves the bed.
We also worked together to make her cousin a single bed that I will share photos of also. Thank you so much for sharing the plans with us!
