Day to Day Adventure: Loft Bed & Shelves

Loft Bed & Shelves


Steve & Elizabeth started a new project last week.  I admit it is one that I encouraged them to do.  I have a girl who is a book lover.  It is challenging to keep them organize & neat.  She is also in 9th grade this year.




That means more school books & notebooks than ever.  However, she has a small desk & it usually looks like a tornado hit it.  She’s okay with the mess but she admits that she “spills” over on to the floor around her desk a lot.

The plan is to build a loft bed for Elizabeth that will allow her to have more bookshelf space & move her desk under her bed. P1110668

She is terribly excited and enjoyed getting to help her Dad build the first part of the bed.  


I love it when a need can be satisfied by Dad & the kids working together.  They did a great job with a little help from Joshua. 


We got our plans & this photo from Anna White’s site.  Elizabeth’s bed will have the big shelves on both ends(more space!)


If you’ve never  been there you out to check it out.  I have a wish list a mile long.  Hopefully soon there will be pictures of the bed part.  Big decision right now is do we paint or stain the wood? 


What would you do?



  1. Wow that's great! I just found your blog! I love all of your ideas!

  2. paint is so much easier!!! But I do like the look of wood....decisions, decisions.

Also, I delete comments that only ask for a follow back. The best way to get me to YOUR blog is to leave comment showing that you've read SOMETHING on my blog. Thanks!
