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)
Type of Wood
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!
