I am sooooo excited!!! We got the bunk bed put together today! Hooray! It was a long couple of days and we had a bit of a set back at one point because we forgot to figure a dimension into some of our measuring, but we got it built! And for a little under $100!
The plan we used was quite simple and with my dad's handy pocket hole tool, it made it even better! (You can find the plan here at this AMAZING website! Just search for "Classic Bunk Bed")
I think the worst part was probably sanding ALL that wood! My had is still vibrating from using the sander. LOL!
It was fun to hang out with my dad for a couple days and build something together. We both love to create and make things, and this was more fun than putting together something from IKEA. (Although that DEFINITELY has it's place too! Our house wouldn't be the same without IKEA. LOL!)
Anyway, now all that's left to do is some finish sanding, priming it, painting it, putting the slats in and bringing it in for the little princesses to enjoy. It will probably be another week or more before it is completely done, but I had to share the progress we've made. :)
