Twin Storage Beds with corner unit

When we moved into our new house, I figured it was time to replace my girls's mattresses on the floor with actual beds. so I set about making the twin storage beds with corner unit. I primed all the wood prior to cutting and assembling, and that made things go much faster. Assembling the corner unit was tricky, since i really didn't want to have sanding and much paint in their bedroom. (i loaded in the beds first and the corner unit a week later). I added trim that wasn't on the plan, and also used the magnetic paint on the center area, although it makes a weak magnetic surface. All in all, I LOVE the way it turns out and no one can believe that I built it and didn't buy it... (although it seems obvious to me when you look closely LOL)

It looks great, and I love what you did with the walls! Free hand with paint, or decals? Either way, its darling and clearly gives each girl her own space.

We have the same lamps - quite popular :)

I am trying to figure out a clever way to put three girls in a (huge) room and I think something like this or a bunkbed combo would make it fun and new for them..

Where can I find the plans for the top half of the corner unit.? Your beds are exactly what I want for my girls. Thanks for sharing.

This bedroom is great!What I mostly like besides the twin beds are the lamps from the wall which are very nice.I've recently decorated my baby's room and I made some similar lamps from recycled projector bulbs.
