My daughter is two now and my second is on the way, so it was time for her to move into a “big girl” bed and make way for the little sister in the crib. I built this out of some pine I had sawn about a year ago and I was really happy with the result. The headboard and footboard are beadboard, but everything else is the pine. I painted it all with 2 coats of primer and 4 coats of enamel, all sprayed on. The drawers are 10” deep and are made form a single board. They are finished with a coat of shellac, two coats of gel stain and six coats of wiping varnish. I used Blum full extension undermount glides and cast stainless pulls. the side rails come off to convert into a regular twin bed. Luckily my daughter slept the entire night in the bed without complaint!
