This is a modification of my Yankees baseball bed. The customer wanted a daybed version of it with a trundle and drawers. It was completed in September 2012. I used the large headboard that I normally build for the Baseball Loft bed and changed up the end panels. I originally use two foot boards, but I didn’t like the look, so I made new panels that had a swooping design.

The color is the true Yankee blue color that we had matched.

Here are some building pictures:

I forgot to mention the Yankee Facade at the top of the headboard. I’ve used that on a couple projects. It ties into the old stadium.

Hmmm…as a life-long, dyed-in-the-wool Red Sox fan, it kills me to say this, but…nice job. Actually, VERY nice job.

This is great! Do you have to get permission to reproduce a licensed logo? Just curious??

I’m curious about the logo question too, not because i’m the logo police but because I just posed a question about logos on a Texas A & M inlay cutting board that I just made. Wondering about the legalities of it.
