This project is not technically mine. My part was to pick the winning score and game of the World Series as a lifelong Giants fan that really wasn’t hard. Chris and I talked and I selected the score from game 5 with the AT BAT the moment the game changed for the Giants when Rentoria #16 with a count of 2 and 0, 2 outs, hit his three run homer. The bed is for my Grandson Gavin who is just learning to read and loves the idea that there are words all over the headboard. If the first word he can read flawlessly is Giants well then Grandpa did his job, right.

The bed made that final game so exciting, again thanks to Chris and the guys at for posting the contest and coming through with an outstanding bed just when Gavin was ready to get out the crib.

Really like the use of the scoreboard as the headboard!

And of course, the personalized, actual stats from the game is a nice touch as well. It’ll be one of those “I remember when” moments.

“If the first word he can read flawlessly is Giants” I was thinking more of the Rockies. ;)

That is a well-designed bed and the baseball theme is great, no matter what team is represented! Thanks for sharing the project.
