We have the possibility of family staying for the holidays so furnishing the spare bedroom became priority number one. First up was a bed. To gain another sleeping space we went with a bunk bed. It’s a clean 2×4 and 2×6 design with no screw heads showing on the outside. Total materials cost was about $135. Take that Ikea!

I also made a video of the build for those who are interested:

IKEA is only ’’allegedly’’ cheap! They will never beat DIY.

Nice design on this bunk bed , looks like it will be very strong and last for years. Ikea may sometimes be Cheaper in price than DIY but it is also usually Cheaper in Quality.

Well done.
