Camp Loft Bed w/ Stairs

Submitted by marievilla on Sun, 01/27/2013 - 14:22

My husband built this bed for our son by combining 2 of the plans from here. The Loft bed and the Camp Loft Bed w/ stairs. We knew we wanted to build a loft bed for our son but liked the idea of the platform w/ stairs so it wouldn't block his window. We also wanted to incorporate a bookshelf for his growing collection of Legos to display as well as books, etc. The next project to add to this will be the desk for underneath. I'll add pictures when we build that. Instead of using 2 x 4's for the top rails of the bed, he improvised and created his own version of a panel for the top. I love how it turned out!

Estimated Cost
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used
Fully sanded the furniture down, then applied 1 coat of Minwax American Chestnut Polyurethane & Stain in One Gloss Finish. After allowing it to dry overnight, we applied a second thinner coat.

Just love this, I'm hoping to do something similar in a full size for my 9yr old daughter. She feels a bit sketchy with a ladder so the stairs will be better and I love using my Kreg jig so not having to piece together the supports sounds good to me!
