Hammer, I think the best bet for an overhead bunk is to build it, finding one is slim, IMHO. At least it would be the size and what you would like.

Overhead Bed lifts are available from Happijac...been in business for many years.
BedLifts

If it does not need to motor up to the ceiling, then DIY is probably the best option.

Best luck

In the RV world - trim means either, a piece of molded plastic made by the mfgt, or a fascia made of thin board (like plywood or Masonite) then covered with a veneer or upholstery.

The plastic is typically hard to find if at all and if found, will often be brittle from age. The covered board is easy to create with simple tools.

Best luck

thanks, I was afraid of that, I guess I can have some wood trim planed, and ca try my hand at sewing welting, already need a upholstery shop to make me some matching buttons to hold the headboard and body runner along the length of the bed

Question cheap cabinet faces,

what have you all done when recovering the cabinets, the doors are wood, but the cabinet themselves are i/8th inch cheap looking picture looking crap, what have y'all done to recover them, I was thinking of covering them with a burlap looking material, have you removed the covering before recovering or just used wallpaper glue to adhere the material, any thoughts,,, just looking for some input,,,,

thanks

hammer55,
Nice job on your remodel. You have a really nice place that you can call your own design.

I envy your guys (and gals?) with the guts, skill and time to take on these levels of re-dos.

Keep us all posted with your progress.

thanks

thanks for the compliments, and it does not take guts, or much skill, I have watched youtube videos to see how to do the valances and such, wallpaper is a snap, just try to get every obstacle out of the way, and if it is a long wall start with a straight line on the wall, I only have the time because I had to retire, but it is taking me a long time in doing it, and I chose easy carpeting to put back in, plus if you do the ear out and have someone do the install after you buy the materials then it is a bit cheaper, take the chance, it is not as hard as you think, I always say if that guy can do it, I sure the heck can, but I do know my limitations, I took my seats down to a local guy to be recovered, wanted to save time and money of me not being able to sew the seams straight
