musicians workspace queen loft bed
Shannon wrote, "I left the wood raw, as time was of the essence. Don't be alarmed by the curve of the frame, it's an illusion caused by the panoramic function. Rather than make the headboard, I opted for a picture ledge from Ikea that I screwed onto the side guardrail. It's just big enough for a cup of tea and some other bedside essentials. And underneath, I have created a cozy little musician's workspace."

David in Michigan built this OP Loftbed, and his wife Chriss accessorized it, for their daughter Erin. Chriss says, "We had searched all the stores for a decent loft bed for her, couldn’t find anything we liked, or that seemed sturdy enough. We ended up building yours, and love how it turned out! My husband added the shelf under the bed in the last picture. Thanks for the great plans! We built a medium height bed with 10 inches added onto it. Works great with our 8 foot ceilings! Our daughter loves her bed, and so do all of her friends!"

Hardy and Teresa in Wisconsin crafted this wonderful loft bed. They told us, "We built this using the plans from OP and then got some additional ideas from the pictures on the website. Very helpful! We decided to put paneling underneath the bed to create a cleaner look. I also appreciated the double rails to make my daughter (and me!) feel better about security. My husband installed LED under counter lighting for the desk and we placed an additional clip lamp near the bed for nighttime reading. My eight year old daughter loves it!! Thanks OP!"

Chris in Archdale, NC sent us pictures of the loft bed he built. He says, "We built our little girl a double loftbed as a gift for her 7th birthday.

Gary in Tennessee sent a lot of details about the loft bed he built. He says, " This was my first significant wood working project, but it turned out great! I built this for my 8 year old daughter Claire and she (and all of her friends) love it. It’s a simple design, but I’m impressed with how great it looks and how sturdy it is (it’s build like tank!). My son is now convinced he needs one too. :-)" See more pictures and details about this project in the OP Loftbed blog...

 

a loft bed dream house for a little girl
Adriana in Beaumont, California. She writes, "What kind of little girl doesn't want to have her own little house? The plans were quite sturdy and very easy to follow! It just took motivation among adding a little flowers, spice, and everything nice to create a unique piece of furniture that is set to make any girl's dream playhouse a reality. I have never seen my 3 year old girl so happy!" See more pictures and details about this project in the OP Loftbed blog...

Robin in Kalamazoo, Michigan built this full size loft bed and added lots of creative accessories. "This is my 6 year olds loft bed. I used the tall-medium, full size loft bed plans. He absolutely LOVES this bed. I attached rope lights around the top and down the stair rail that he can operate from a switch at the head of the bed. I built stairs to ease the climb up and down. Flip chairs under the bed for extra seating or an extra sleep space. l mounted lights under the bed as well and I covered the X braces with dry erase board. This was lots of fun to make. My son had great fun decorating it with Mario decals and I think this bed is sturdy enough to hold a car!!! Thanks for the great plans!" See more pictures of this project in the OP Loftbed blog...
Twin over queen bunk bed
Laurie in Ontario sent us this great picture of their twin-over-queen bunkbed. She says, "We moved our family of 3 into a one bedroom apartment entirely voluntarily on a mission to simplify our lives. Your OP Loft Bed plans made it work wonderfully (no tripping over eachother in the 10 x 12 bedroom with floor space to spare)! We looked at traditional bunk beds, I'm not sure I'd be comfortable climbing up there for story time. This way, we got to keep our current mattresses and have something we're comfortable climbing on and sleeping under. Thanks for being awesome! :)"

Boy's loft bed in Austin, TX

Joe in Austin Texas built this full size loft bed for his son. "Bought the full size medium height plans and me, my wife, and son finished in about 3 weekends. Most time spent on it was staining and adding two coats of polyurethane. Built the short leg pieces a little taller than plans due to my son has a 13" pillow top mattress. Then had to raise the guardrails up some too. It makes his small bedroom have more space and he loves hanging out underneath it."
Loft beds for four big guys
Joanna tells us about her experience building loft beds for her four sons, "Hi. I am a 48 year-old cheapskate of a Mom with a great deal of determination and a slight knack for handiness. We live in a home with very little storage space and have 4 very tall boys, each weighing about 200 lbs. Two of the boys share a bedroom, and when they came home from college we had no place to store their luggage, college linens, books, etc." Continued in the OP Loftbed blog...

Teacher makes reading fun with a loft bed in the classroom

Teacher makes reading fun with a loft bed in the classroom
Beverly is a 2nd grade teacher in Utah. She says, "My husband built a loftbed using your plans which I use in the classroom as a reading loft. The 2nd graders can't wait to be rewarded with time in the loft (either up or down, it doesn't matter to them) where they can read their favorite books. It has been an amazing tool to reward the children for good behavior, and encourage them to read while in a comfortable and secluded corner of the classroom. I am the envy of the entire school faculty. Even the principal told me that parents of first graders are lining up to request that their children be put in my class next year. Thank you for a fun and useful project!"

Jerry in Arkansas tells us, "Thank you so much for these plans. We've looked at a lot of the bunk beds manufactured these days and we were never happy with how they were built, until we saw these plans. Erika just loves her new bedroom so much and the loft bed really made it unique. She has so much more play room for her toys now. Thanks OP Loftbed."

Jenny designed and built a nice set of steps for this OP Loftbed. She says this is, "the second full sized loft bed that I built. This one is for my youngest daughter her mom didnt think that she was big enough to climb up and down the side so I improvised."
Trent in Houston great loft bed
Trent in Houston, Texas wrote to say, "I bought your plans for the OPLoftbed in November 2007 and the bed I made for my son is great. I am currently making a shelf to somewhat match the bed."
098 loft bed in chicago apartment
Alex shared this picture of the OP Loftbed he built. He says, "After all of the work I put into it, I thought I'd email you guys my queen sized loft bed. It was a little bit of work but worth every minute. It works great and I can't imagine my tiny Chicago apartment without it!"
Girl's Birthday Loft Bed
Scott in Michigan built this OP Loftbed for his daughter for her birthday. "It is hard to get her out of it now. The design was easy to follow, and I have amazed myself putting it together and having everything line up enough that I could get the bolt through! I added a big desk underneath using a piece of finished plywood. This really adds some space to a small room. Very sturdy as well. No issue with anything falling over on the desk while someone climbs up to the top. Thanks for all of the great pictures out there to get ideas."
My first wood project with plans
Scott in Illinois says, "I just finished my bed this weekend. This is my first wood project with plans. After searching the web, I chose your plans because of my initial communication with your support and your testimonials. You have lived up to you name."

"Your plans are bang one. So easy to read and follow and the bed went together like clockwork. Thanks. I enjoyed the experience so much that I decided to blog about it on my internet marketing blog.

 

Dorm room loft bed
Craig wrote to say, "Everything went smoothly, even when we had to change the height of the bed platform once we got the frame into my son's dorm room. It's very sturdy, and very useful. Sorry I don't have any better pictures, but here's what we have. FYI - we saw a lot of other loft kits, including one sold by Lowes, and they were very flimsy comparatively. I don't know that I would have felt secure with them. I pulled and yanked on the OP loft once my son and I had it finished, and it just won't budge." Continued in the OP Loftbed blog...
Daughter's loft bed with ladder
Danielle in Texas built this OP Loftbed for her daughter. "This twin high loft took about a month for me to build from start to finish. The plans were easy to follow. My husband thought that the work involved might have been worth the extra cost to have someone else build it. I, on the other hand, have minimal skills and found the experience enjoyable and empowering (I also did about 90% of the work). This bed is STURDY! It does NOT MOVE! I had fun making it, I can take pride in my work and my daughter LOVES IT!" Continued in the OP Loftbed blog...
Two twin loft beds for brothers
Jerry in Pennsylvania tells us, "We wanted to make our boys' room something unique and to be proud of. This project surpassed what we had desired. The bed plans (Tall Loft) were well drawn and detailed. Extremely sturdy and well designed beds!!! It took a few days of off-and-on work to complete, as well as painting added at least 2 days. All in all a very good project for the 3 of us to tackle. The results were spectacular!!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AS A PROJECT!!!! 5 Stars to OP Loftbed!!!!! Total cost was less than $150 per bed."

Jeanne shared this with us . "We purchased your plans and hardware, and my husband built this full-sized bunk bed for my daughter and her roommate at college. Her room was designed for one occupant, so the bunk beds really came in handy. The beds are extremely sturdy. My husband told my daughter if there is a tornado or hurricane, that she wouldn't be going anywhere if she hung onto the bed!!" Continued in the OP Loftbed Blog...
King Size Loft Bed in Small Studio Apartment
Paul in Minnesota wrote to say. "I went with the king sized loft so I could put two twin mattress up there so that both my 11 yr old son and I could sleep in. Under the loft made a perfect play area for my 6 and 4 year olds. I raised the height so that I could stand under it (I'm six feet) and added a couple railings. It's really sturdy. Now I just need to stain it and add some carpet to the stairs for extra padding. Fun project, ended up costing around $150 which is really great for the amount of space it saved me (I live in a 650sf studio apt)."
Camouflaged loft bed
Sam in Louisiana recently completed a loft bed for his 9 year old son. "He LOVES his new bed. I completed the bed start to finish in a weekend. I chose the extra long twin bed plan, so that my son would have plenty of room when he goes to college. My son's really into anything camo, so we found camo bedding, and a mosquito net curtain completed the look. This is his favorite place to be in his room, and shows the bed off to any newcomers we might have. Thanks for the great plans!"
