This is my first large project and I'm very happy with the result. Since I knew we were using regular (thick) mattresses instead of thin bunk-style mattresses, I built the guard rails taller than in the plans. The bunk beds are painted Benjamin Moore Citrus Orange http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-ca/paint-color/citrusorange. The walls are Benjamin Moore Waterfall http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-ca/paint-color/waterfall.
Helpful Hint: IKEA's LONSET slatted bed base fits perfectly instead of needing to cut your own bed slats. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80278715/#/30278732
