My daughter wanted a new bunk bed but, as there is only one of her, I didn’t see the need for two beds so I decided to build a loft bed with storage underneath. The steps were requested instead of a ladder.
The room had an alcove in it that was just slightly bigger than the standard UK single matress so was the ideal spot, leaving the rest of the room for play space.
The basic frame is made from 2×4’s, stairs and front from MDF and the drawer/shelf unit is made from birch ply (I wanted this to be a piece of furniture that could be reused as a stand alone piece for when she grows out of this bed and I have to build another, hopefully a good few years away).
The treads on the stairs open up for further storage.
Finished with a couple of coats of a good quality gloss paint (and fairy stickers)
