We love beautiful custom beds for shared rooms. The only thing we love more are step by step instructions on how to make said beds, taking the image of a spectacular room from fantasy to playbook.
Ashley and Jamin hatched the idea to build a loft that spanned the back of the room with foot-to-foot mattresses. Then they decided to make it for their sons. One heartening piece of this tutorial is Jamin's disclosure that he wasn't raised by a handy dad, but he acquired his carpentry skills on the fly. Pretty impressive when you read through the entire process and see all of the pictures that Ashley and Jamin took along the way.
