This took a lot of time. Many nights and weekends. We used a grey stain and poly for the planks and white paint and poly for the trim. I had to remove the under bed storage because the mattresses we bought were very thick so it was modified a little. Also I added some additional support to each side with another 2x4 because I felt it wasn't sturdy enough with just one support on the stair side. I also included a full roof with cedar shingles so that one of my twin boys doesn't jump out. They are 3 year old maniacs.
