Customized version of the clubhouse bed that is so popular! We went the extra mile on the finishing touches to ensure an awesome bed for our little guy! We made the bed taller for more space underneath and polished up the finished product to create a higher end look. Care was taken to precisely sand all areas of the bed for a smooth finish and polished look. All pocket-holes are filled with plugs and sanded smooth on the inside of the bed for an overall finished product. No shortcuts taken! We went the extra mile and painted the carriage bolts so they would blend in with the whitewash finish and also recessed the nut on the back of the legs for safety and added a cap so they are not visible. Top of the bed, above the door, is filled in and a custom ladder finishes off the look. We went with smaller lumber to build the ladder and it is perfect!! We are over the moon with this project and will be building more items as fast as we can. Also, the sign, under-bed shelves, and industrial shelves were built by my husband. He did an epic job creating this room!! We used better grade wood and spent a lot of time sanding to ensure a great bed in the end. We also went with a Benjamin Moore stain that was a little more expensive and took the time to finish the slats under the bed.

I love this bed! I was looking at the BM site and was wondering what exact stain did you use? there are 5 different opacities & I want to make sure I get the right one.  Thanks!!
