Thanks! My husband used birch plywood. First we painted the front and back with primer to seal it, and then we just painted the front with a quart of chalkboard paint. He attached it to the fence with galvanized wood screws. So far so good, it's been 9 months and it looks brand new. Good luck!
We created an area for books and drawing behind the cloud screen, wide enough for two seats, and with the the addition of a pull out desk for when there's never enough places to draw and paint, doubling the size of the desk area. Childrens room interior design also needs to accommodate storage, so under each seat and under the dresser, we have built made to measure toy boxes which pull out on castors for this childrens playroom London.
non-bunk bunk beds-- I dig this. Maybe an idea for S's big girl bedroom. Storage above her bed accessible by a ladder-- maybe a shelf strong enough to accomodate a little pallet for her to lie or sit on someday (when she's old enough that it's safe).
