happy to be me

Diy toddler bed

Ok so it was time to upgrade from crib to toddler bed. We didn’t buy a convertible crib so wanted to make our own.

I got the original bed design

The only reason I didn’t do that exact design is because birch wood is expensive!
My husband made it out of plywood which is a lot cheaper. Thank goodness for a handyman.

I then added batting to the bed and put extra cushion on all the corners.

Finally added chevron print which took five yards! I got it on sale at joanns for 2.99/yard plus 50% off coupon!

We made the bed longer than the other design as well with extra padding below because my kids always want to sleep with toys! It’s also perfect for their stars night lights and what not.

My daughters was done in pink and blue and our sons done with orange and green!

My kids have been sleeping with me since day one and it’s a hard habit to break for this crazy momma but I’m happy that they love their beds!
