Twin over Full for my Girls!

Submitted by brguad on Sat, 11/16/2013 - 11:44

I have two girls and my youngest was getting out of a crib. I could build another bed or include both girls and build a bunk bed. I chose the bunk bed route with the approval of my wife and got started. I loved the plans from and decided to pull the trigger.
Total cost for bed not including the new full mattress was around $300. A huge savings from the estimated $1,500 from comparable beds on the market. This took me about 2 weeks total but that was a couple hours here and there. I would describe most of the work as beginner skill level but a couple of the steps had challenges but you could figure it out. My girls were out there helping me build and paint so it was also very memorable. Thank you again for all you do Ana.


Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
Sanded with 120, used a primer and finished with 2 coats of Pixie Dust. It's almost white but has a touch of pink.

I used the twin simple bed plans, full simple bed plans and the twin over full plans for the ladder. It was easier to just print them all off. Hope that helps
