My very first build!!!

Submitted by Carriganm on Sat, 12/29/2018 - 21:11

I decided to tackle my very first build this year. I built the full size bunk beds for my girls for Christmas!!!!! I built the rail and ladder (except the 2x4 long posts) out of scrap wood. It took 2 weeks to build & paint only because I did it weeknights after my kids went to bed. I’m in love!

Estimated Cost
I didn’t price out exactly. But roughly $350. That included all lumber and screws!
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used
Painted white
Recommended Skill Level

You should be incredibly proud, it’s BEAUTIFUL! I am planning to build full-sized beds for my twin daughters, and your post is very inspirational!
