This project is for my own needs. When we bought this bed we didn’t think that one day kids should sleep with us… So ,second kid is on the way and my almost 2 years old son is waking up almost every night and asking to come sleep with us. We found solution on one bed, but when second baby comes that bed is not option and oldest kid is moving on upper floor in my and my wife room. We bought him own children bed,but if he continue waking up and sleeping with me or my wife, I’m afraid he could felt down very easily from this almost 50 cm tall bed.
I didn’t have any plans for it. It’s 2m long and in total 95cm tall. Holes for wooden sticks are drilled in 10 degree angle ( like that I didn’t left any space between bed and fence ). I use one peace of laminated wood 90×90mm,wooden sticks 18mm and 45mm in diameter. Under fence I attach two legs from same laminated wood ( it comes as 3m long peace ). It’s connected with bed with 3 metal hooks ( I didn’t put any screws ,so the bed frame is undamaged ). At the end I seal fence with one coat of oak color and varnish.
Want to say one more thing…to mount or dismount this fence you need to lift up whole bed. I was guessing that way is safe enough and risk of fence sliding under bed is almost impossible.
Please feel free to comment,I would like to know did anyone else made something like this,or is there better way to do it!?

I agree, very practical and clever. I like how you angled the framing of the ‘fence’. Great workmanship as well.
