Bunk Bed for Beau!


My son has wanted a bunk bed for months and now that we got a puppy, made perfect sense to make one! I didn't like any of the plans I found so ended up making one completely from scratch. Used different kinds of pine for most of the bunk bed including the accent backboard. Mixture of natural and stained woods using Minwax. My son likes to read at night so added two LED can lights for the bottom bed connected to a switch that plugs into an outlet. Hardest part was the length of time it took to individually stain the pieces of wood for the bunk slats and frame.

    • I would love to have the plans on the bunk beds. I absolutely love the bookshelves built into the steps. And the lights are a great addition. You did an awesome job!!!

  • That bunk bed is too cool! The lights are a great addition for a little nighttime reading. And using the shelves as storage and steps is very creative!
