Cottage Playhouse loft bed

Submitted by bhoppy on Wed, 10/02/2019 - 05:50

I built this bed a while ago but I am finally getting around to submitting a brag post.

It is the largest thing I have ever built and it was a huge labor of love. I made it by myself in the evenings after work and weekends over the course of a few weeks.  I modified the plans only slightly.  I added an extra 1x6 board which makes the overall height 76 inches tall. 

I also changed how the windows were framed and added flower boxes. I got a bit OCD and filled all the pocket holes because I didn’t like the way they looked even though it was quite tedious, I am happy with the way it turned out.

At first, I put the play kitchen I built from Ana’s plans underneath, but that was later replaced with a little tv stand that I made to fit perfectly under the playhouse.  I didn’t use any plans for that but it was just a simple bookshelf.  I measured the space, cut the wood as I went and used beadboard on the back of the shelf with cutouts for cords.  I used leftover paint from the playhouse for the tv stand.
