The last time I shared Henry’s tiny little room, it included Henry’s crib converted to a toddler bed. But crib took up way too much space and was cumbersome in such a tiny space.
So, I got to thinking that a little platform bed would be just the ticket. It would be a lower profile and would also fit against the window wall. Plus, it could give us a little more storage for the small room.
Luckily for me, my brother and Ryan knocked out this little bed in a few hours. And it’s made Henry’s whole room look so much bigger.
And the best part was when Henry hopped up on the bed and exclaimed, “I LOVE MY RED BED.”
I died. Right there.
The bed is build from less than 2 sheets of 1/2 inch plywood and 1 – 2×12. They cut the 2×12 to be the vertical pieces and used the plywood for the top and bottom. It ended up being plenty sturdy for the toddler mattress and has an abundance of storage underneath – which we’re mostly using for books.
And I finally hung up Henry’s artwork – made by the very talented Jen from Onion Grove Mercantile. It’s one of the only pieces that isn’t in storage. I couldn’t bear to store it away.
What do you think of Henry’s new red bed?
