Finished with the finish

For nearly eight months I have been laboring on and off to finish (that is: apply stain and polyurethane) a set of bunk beds for the girls. At long last the project reached completion.

I did make a few mistakes during assembly that led to disassembly and reassembly of certain parts (and 2 or 3 broken dowels that had to be drilled out). Also, I almost broke Yoli’s foot.

But the finished product looks pretty good in my opinion and the girls have loved it.

These are some photos of the girls the morning after their first night sleeping in the bunk beds. Ludi is still asleep, actually, and Jadzia is groggy.

    Can I ask where you found the bunk beds? We are desperately looking for a good wooden set like you have!

    Ashley, we bought it from Pieper’s Unfinished Furniture in St. Louis. They sell unfinished solid wood pieces, not the particle board or laminate stuff.
    I don’t think they have the exact same bunk bed model anymore, but their showroom is lovely. I could spend weeks in there looking at all the awesome stuff.
