This summer my tween son said, “Mom, I need a big boy bed.” Okay, now before images form in your heads of my 12 year old son sleeping in a crib, he was referring to not having an official bedroom set. I have shared several of his room updates, but none of them addressed his mix-matched bedroom furniture. And, given that they had zero comments, none of the updates were that fabulous! In fact, they were more like ghetto-fabulous! Here’s the most recent makeover: But the room is small at best and the bed sorta centered on the wall took up too much space! So this past November I found this bed.
The “headboard” centered on the length of the bed was perfect. I actually bought 2 beds (one for each son). The bed frame included built in shelves and storage underneath through that little door in the corner at the end of the bed.
I have talked about this former exercise foam squares turned headboard before, but now it is a feature wall piece. When we moved the bed against the window I no longer needed this headboard.
I loved this project so I simply repositioned it against the main wall. I continue to add tennis and fun stuff to this headboard. The “and Evan” is in reference to the fact our son is the youngest so all references tend to end with … “and Evan.”
