Project: New Loft Bed

It took over 9 months from start to finish.

Back in March 2010, I started building Matthew a loft bed based on the design of those sold by an online seller of “college loft beds.”

It stopped a few weeks later due to busy schedules.

I finally resumed in December with the encouragement and assistance of a handyman friend who also happened to own a very nice cup paint sprayer.

It’s now done.  And yes, as my wife commented upon first sight, it’s green.  Very green.

Here are a few photos of the construction/assembly/install from start to eventual finish:

Crazy drill-wielding kid o’ mine…

And finally, installed (though still needing a bit of paint touch-up):

Matthew’s younger brother actually got a bonus.  We converted their 2 formerly twin bunks into a mini-loft of sorts by removing one of the cross beams for the lower bunk:

    Great job. It looks like it should hold up well to boys. Nice and sturdy!
