To kick off the new year I completed a project that I had been meaning to do all last year. Technically I did get it done last year (well except that I still need to paint the thing) but I am pretty proud of. The room is newly painted and the new beds are in. As you can see the kids helped a lot.
The plans are from The Hand Made Dress. They are two bucks. Don’t do what I did and get both sets as they are the same and include everything you need for either design. Granted, I would have gladly paid a lot more for these plans.
I did make some minor changers; I use 2x6x8’s to build the bed frame instead of 2x8x8’s and I added four extra 2x3x8’s to the purchase list, so that I could build a railing on the top bunk.
So, here a few pictures our project. As you can see, everyone got to help. The beds, even while they were only partially put together, are very strong.
I had lots of help. Some slightly more helpful that other. Also this project gave son #4 a good chance use his new tool kit. It was really very useful.
The completed beds were very well appreciated.
I have one more set to build in the girls room. Their room does not need to be painted, so it should take less time to complete the whole job.
