Loft Bed with Shelves

Submitted by KeithO on Thu, 08/07/2014 - 09:38

This build was not hard, but just took time. The plans were perfect. Clear, easy to follow and correct. 

Materials cost about $400. 

This was a fun project because my 8 years old son got to help build his bed. I used a brad nailer to hold many pieces together after they were glued. Not a must, but it made the build a lot easier.  It also came in very handy when making the shelves.

We also added IKEA LED lights underneath the bed for a cool effect.
