Car Bed

A couple of weeks ago, upon my request, my husband started building a car shaped bed for our little boy. What a task! I must clarify that I saw a similar bed on the internet, but couldn't find any retailers to actually purchase it, so my husband modified it a bit. It started with measuring (twin size) and sketching...

Then cutting, sanding and putting it together to see if it all fits before the paint was applied...

Then masking and spray painting started, lots of days of that....


That's what the finished bed looks like and the little man loves it (and so does my husband and I).

Now, I am just crossing my fingers that tonight he will sleep better than he did last, it felt like we were transitioning him from the crib to a toddler bed, he woke up crying and calling for us every hour. Today I feel like I was hit by a truck! So, cross your fingers, please.


  1. The bed is fantastic- great place for a busy little boy to rest his head. I hope he settles to a deep sleep dreaming of driving to amazing places in his fabulous car!

  2. This is such a fabulous bed! I never had anything this cool!
