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!

very creative,ill bet you would have a lot of people willing to buy a set of furniture like that,most stuff you do find for kids is cheap crap that youll be lucky it lasts until the kids out grow it.was this your own design?great work.
