Finished and will be delivered this weekend. For my Granddaughter.
Wood is poplar for the frames, MDF for all the panels, oak for the bed slats, plywood for the bed platform, angle iiron to hold the bed slats to the bed rails. Joinery is mortise/tenon with cross dowel knock down hardware. White and pink acrylic latex paint, sprayed on with an airless sprayer. Designed for complete assembly disassembly so if she outgrows the ‘cottage top’ it can be removed and stored. Remote controllable LED lighting strip on the underside of the roof ridge will light up the interior. 20 colors and several ‘light shows’ to choose from.

Thanks for looking.
