Big Boy Bed Status

UPDATE: We have finally posted our “tutorial” so you can hopefully build a bed like the one below. Find the details HERE.

You can tell by Dax’s “long hair don’t care” appearance that this post is long overdue. I had hoped to post a bed tutorial first, but this on-again, off-again spring weather has our bed painting session on hold until it’s consistently warmer.

I think this post deserves a moment of praise for my handy husband took on the task of creating a lighted headboard (with a switch, y’all) from a dream in my head and a chicken scratch sketch on an old bill. Guys, he totally knocked it out of the park! We plan on painting the bed white soon, but in the meantime we are enjoying it as is. Dax absolutely loves being able to have a light above him at the flip of a switch, and although I was worried he may use it when he shouldn’t, we haven’t had any issues in the past couple months, thank goodness!

Stay tuned for more detailed DIYs from the bed, quilt and more from this project coming up. Enjoy.

Although the DIY is to come, we’ve had interest in where we got the light on the headboard. We got it off amazon guys. It was so easy to install, the perfect size and such a great deal. :)
