When it came time for my son to move out of his crib to a real bed, I had to build something that fit the theme of the room. I used red oak, MDF and .25” plywood to construct the bed. It was stained and painted to match the walls and the previously built bookcase.

Here is a link to a more pictures of the room.

Wow! Now how cool and creative is that room? I love the room, the furniture, and the artwork. It all fit’s together in harmony and is so whimsical and imaginative. Watch out! Your son might become an artist! :)

He will love it!
