Playhouse Loft Bed with Stairs

I built this bed for my twin daughters right after Christmas. It was the first big wood project that I've ever attempted in my life. I was surprised at how easy it was to build and how great it turned out! It looks much harder to make than it actually was. We plan to eventually put a second twin mattress under the bottom, but for now that space is a playhouse. I put carpet on the storage stairs by cutting up a rubber-backed bathroom rug and using the pieces to cover each step. I hung Christmas rope lighting inside the play house. It took me about 2 days to construct the bed and about a week to paint and finish it (with 6 children under foot-otherwise could have been much faster!) Fun project and EASY plans! (Thanks Ana!)
