This is a loft bed I made for my grand daughter Mary Beth. I has lights under the bed with a switch on one post. I has shelves, cubies and a secret compartment complete with lock and key. My wife made the cusions.

I especially like the lights and how you integrated a switch into one of the posts. I have an eight year old who is quickly running out of room. This style bed may be in her future – it might even help to keep her in her own room all night long!

Very nice. What type of wood did you use? Did you use a plan or design it yourself?

Great Job!!! I will not show it to my daughter because she would definitely want one.

That is a great job. I am getting ready to start something like this for my son and am just gathering ideas so this was wonderful to see.

This is really cool. I wish I had the ability to get some material. I’d do this in both kids rooms. Way to go.

Great looking bed! Would be interested in plans as well – if they’re on paper, I can get them into SketchUp if that helps. My daughter loves to read, so this would be a great bed for her!
