"C" is for Clubhouse Bed

Build: clubhouse bed

The building plans will be coming soon are here from Ana White but I just couldn't wait to share:

image from Pottery Barn Kids

I even added the 'SURFBOARDS' sign to complete the knock off:

Perhaps underneath the loft bed is the best part:

And when you close the curtains:

You have the perfect hide out:

I attached the curtains with simple rods hooked through giant screw eyes:

And I used a navy and white chevron fabric:

They have great prices and free shipping if you spend $35.

I also added some curtain tie backs with velcro for the kids:

Cut 2" strip of fabric and velcro pieces:

Press fabric in half and then press raw edge in, straight stitch closed and stitch on velcro:

Screw directly to 2x4 inner leg:

Much more tidy looking

I added some long outdoor cushions, fabric bunting and the cutest little red stool:

The stool is built from Ana White's plans here.

This clubhouse bed was truly built for buddy boy so I made him a special sign:

But as soon as my girls saw it they went to make their own 'NO BOYS ALLOWED' sign, at least they're keeping busy with the new bed!

We are in the process of building this bed for our 3 yr old grandson for Christmas. My question is: how much material (yardage) did you use or order for the curtains. It looks like you did the front and one side only. Please let me know. Thanks so much. He will just love it!!

Nicole van der Wiel said...

Hi, that's awesome! We're going to build one too. Can you tell me what's the lenght of the bed (for matras size)?
