Bunk Beds by Dad

I have longed to have really nice beds for my children that we could pass down to our grand kids, but the $1,000+ price tag was just too much for us to justify right now.  So, we have decided to make our own.  Thanks to Ana White’s website, we found a super cute and relatively easy (if you have a general knowledge of power tools) plan for bunk beds. It took us about a weekend and a half to build it (by us, I mean mostly Matt, and me only when he needed extra hands). We have yet to paint it, so it’s still a work in progress.  I think we have spent about $400 in wood, supplies, and a few extra tools.  There are no $400 beds as sturdy or as heavy as this sucker!  Plus, we can make them into two individual beds if need be.  I just want everyone to know how thankful I am for my husband who gave up a weekend and a vacation day to do this project and who has the know-how to get it done! He’s amazing.
