The finished loft bed.

“I built my son a full size bed loft with a desk underneath”

How I did it: I built the whole thing out of lumber from a local store using a circular saw, a drill and a socket wrench.  I made my own plans and measurements based on a picture I found online that I liked and the exact size of my son’s mattress.

Lessons & tips: Buy a few extra pieces of wood and more screws.  You’ll need them.

Resources: Sorry about the blurry camera phone picture(s).  It’s what I have available at the moment.

It took me 2 days.

It made me like an amateur
