Sweet Pea Bunk Bed for Boys

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 04/14/2016 - 13:46

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.

Thanks! I posted this as a Guest so I'm not sure how to link it with my account now. I still need to put the second bar on the windows and do the pergola. I'll post new pics when 100% complete!
