Camp Loft Bed

My dad and I built this project for my 3 year old daughter for Christmas. She was ready to move out of her crib and this bed seemed like a great fit for her. We followed the plans almost completely. We opted to use a piece of 3/4 in. plywood on the cleats for the mattress support instead of slats. We also added 4 cross cleats under the plywood for added support. I added a florescent light over the play area underneath because it was a little dark under there. I'm very happy with how this bed turned out and my daughter loves it as well!
