Finished Castle Loft Bed

Do you remember this original sketch?  This is what my mind envisioned.


This is what I built.  What do you think?  Larissa is very pleased with her castle bed.  There are shelves on the bed side where the two towers are.  This gives her space for her lamp, clock and such..


The Prince is front and center.

The stairs are actually built on a very strong and sturdy cabinet that I bought at Goodwill. There is an opening inside so that she has storage inside for her girly "stuff".  The rail is a upcycled, recalled crib rail, I loved the lines of it.

The wood for the bed was around $250 all bought at Lowe's.  The paint for the entire room (used for the bed, walls and furniture) was $100. 

Larissa is contemplating what she wants for her wall mural..........
 
(The plans for joining of the bed came from Ana White)
