My little girl is growing up too fast. It’s time for her to upgrade to a big girl bed and she’s really excited about it. She told me ‘Momma my bed is cute’. That makes all of the effort worth it!

Her twin bed is really easy to build with a Kreg pocket hole jig*. The added molding makes the headboard and foot board look like raised panel. You can add as much molding as you like, to make it look fancy (or non at all).
To make the bed super easy to disassemble, I used bed rail hardware* to attach the bed rails to the head/foot boards. In lieu of the hardware, you can use pocket holes too. Wood slats across the bed rail support the mattress so no box spring is needed.
The building materials for this bed cost me a little over $100.
For this twin bed plan, I was able to partner with BuildSomething.com. BuildSomething is a great community resource for woodworkers and DIY’ers, that may not have a site of their own, to share the plans they’ve created online. Shared plans don’t have to be computer generated, even hand sketches will work.
