A Bed For Big Brother

Have I told you about the bed we built for Big Brother? No?…hmm…that’s strange…it’s been so long I thought for sure you would have heard about it by now. It’s almost like I’ve been busy doing other things, other really important things like marathons. Yeah, you know, I Netflix marathon daily. I’m getting really good at it.

Well, I say that “we” built a bed, but I was as big as a house pregnant at the time so what I really mean is, my dad and Josh built a bed while I sat on the couch and ate fries and Oreo McFlurries.

Don’t judge me mmmkay?

Anyway, the new baby, who I will lovingly refer to as Short Round from now on, was on the way and would soon take over the nursery. It was time for Big Brother to move on up to a bigger room with his very own full size bed. I wanted something that would work for him even as he got older and storage was a must so I looked all over Pinterest for inspiration. I found plans for a great little storage bed here.

So Dad got to work.

Josh taking care of the staining. We modified the original plans a bit and left off the trim for a more unfinished look.

I love how it turned out. Even though we decided to push the bed up against the wall, there is storage on both sides. We can also lift up the mattress and slats to have even more storage.

Side view. The baskets are from Target and fit the cubbies perfectly. We purchased a memory foam mattress from SAMs Club and it is crazy comfy.

Big Brother loves his big boy room. At some point I’ll post pics of it all decorated..you know…in about 6 months or so. What?! Gilmore Girls just came out on Netflix!
