This is the project that I've done for my kids a few years back. We already moved from our old house, and the kids have separate rooms now, but my kids loved their bunk beds! I remember all parties that they had before going to bed. And since it's so spacious, it was never a problem to have a sleepover.
This bed is very easy to make, and when I came up with a design, I wanted it to look modern, which I think I archived.
