DIY Kids Teepee Bed
The coolest kids teepee bed I've ever seen!
I am excited to feature a new build today by some amazing builders. M.E Refined Designs has built this amazing kids teepee bed and I am excited to be featuring the plans for it today on the blog. If I could be a kid again, I would definitely travel back to the future and ask for a bed like this.
Before we jump into the plans, make sure to go check out more of M.E Refined Design's work on all of their social media channels. (Instagram and Facebook). This Kids Teepee bed is just one of the many cool projects they've made.

Now lets get to it!
Step 1: Attach the (76") 1x6 to the two (8") 2x4s using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 1 1/2" setting, with 2 1/2" Pocket Hole Screws to attach along with wood glue. Repeat this step for the other side of the Kids Teepee Bed.
Step 2: Attach the two teepee bed sides together by attaching the (36") 1x6 using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 1 1/2" setting, with 2 1/2" Pocket Hole Screws to attach along with wood glue Repeat this step for the other side of the Kids Teepee Bed.
Step 3: Attach the (74") 2x2 to the outer sides of the kids teepee bed using a brad nailer and brad nails or wood screws. The 2x2 should be flush with the bottom of the 1x6 stretcher. Repeat this step for the other side of the teepee bed frame.
Step 4: Attach the 11 (39 1/2") 1x4 bed stretchers to the assembled bed frame using a brad nailer and brad nails. Each stretcher should have a 3.75" spacing in between each other.
Step 5: Assemble the teepee portion of the bed by attaching the (57 7/16") 1x4 to the (72") 1x4) using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 3/4" setting, with 1 1 1/4" Pocket Hole Screws to attach along with wood glue. Then attach the (14 9/16") 1x4 to the assembled teepee frame. The outside end of the 1x4s should be cut at 20 degrees and the inside of the 1x4s should be cut at 50 degrees.
Step 7: Fill all seen pocket holes with wood for a clean look. For help on how to easily fill pocket holes, check out my technique here.
and that's that!
I really love the simplicity of this build and the natural wood finish with the black tips is absolutely perfect.
