Sliding Barn Door Loft Bed

Hi friends!

Jen Woodhouse here, super excited to share our latest DIY project with you - a Sliding Barn Door Loft Bed! We built this full-size loft bed for our 7-year-old daughter because we wanted to make the most of her small bedroom. And as an Army family, we move around every two years or so, so I drew up the plans so that the bed can be easily disassembled. We all love it so much and hope you do too! I'd love to see you build one for your kiddos (or yourself - no judgement!). Be sure to tag me @jenwoodhouse if you share photos of your build on social media!

And because some people have asked:

  • Our ceilings are 9 feet high.
  • Plans are for a full-size mattress, but I'll be drawing up plans for a twin size shortly.
  • Changing the sheets and making the bed is super easy because we use Beddy's (affiliate link) - Beddy's is an all-in-one fitted/flat sheet/blanket/comforter bedding set that zips up. It really is a game-changer!

Get all the details and the plans on!
