D.I.Y. kids loft bed

Single bed frames were converted into loft beds using recycled timber.





The project


My kids were treated to brand new bedroom suites when we built our house, which was great until one of their friends got a loft bed. My daughters decided that they wanted separate rooms again, so I did my research and, given their single bed frames are in perfect condition, I decided to convert them into loft beds. 





I used recycled pallet wood, leftover timber from the playground I made and also spray painted their old cot to add a feature to my eldest daughter's bed. I have also spray painted a desk for my other daughter. I'm also going to add light under the bed. Thinking LED strips. Still a couple of touches to go but the girls love them.
