Our Camp Loft Bed

I built a bed!

My dad came up last week to help me get more comfortable with our power tools and I picked quite the project to start us off. ;P

The main tools we used were:


We used these plans from Ana White and added 6″ to each of the posts to make it a standard loft size instead of junior loft height.

We also made a matching twin bed that can go underneath (if you didn’t have an 8 year old who insists on having her desk underneath.)

For finishing, I chose to paint it with Valspar Chalk Paint in Beaded Reticule. After one coat of paint and one coat of clear wax, I dabbed some antique wax in random spots and spread it out with a paper towel. Super fancy, right? 😀

We love how it came out and I just love walking into their room!
