Finishing and final assembly

1 Finish-sand the beds, side and headboard safety rails, and ladder. Apply a stain if desired. (We left ours natural.) Apply the finish, lightly sanding between coats with 320-grit sandpaper.

2 Reassemble the beds in the bedroom, screwing the plywood bottoms (K) to the top of the cleats (J). If used as bunk beds, use the holes in the safety rail supports (Q) as guides to drill mating holes in the top bunk bed rail (I). Screw the side and head safety rails in place. ♦
