D.I.Y. kids loft bed

So my kids we’re treated brand new bedroom suites when we built our house. Which was great until one of their friends got a loft bed early last year. As my daughters decided at NYE they wanted seperate rooms again so I had to work out the layouts etc. So I did my research and given their single bed frames are in perfect condition I decided to convert them to loft beds. 

I used spare pallet wood, leftover timber from the playground I made and also spray painted their old cot to add some feature to my eldest daughters bed. Have spray painted a desk for my other daughter so waiting to add that. Plus find the right lights to have under the bed to provide light at nighttime. Will be battery operated. Thinking those LED strips. Still a couple of touches to go but the girls love them and haven’t had any issues.
