It’s hard to believe our first grandchild recently had his first birthday. He’s growing out of his gender-neutral nursery by the minute, so my daughter and I started a folder of possible “big boy” beds, with this clever built in bed among them. While neither of us have a slanted ceiling to work with (Gigi’s house needs a big boy bed too), this one strikes my fancy. It’s enclosed, for the most part, like a toddler bed but unlike regular toddler beds, it keeps the sleeping area dark, which may be suited for sleeping past sunrise. My daughter will love that. The cabin doorway has a curtain which closes for an even stronger cocoon effect. Alternately, sliding barn-style door with cut-outs for closing would be fun too. Mr. Shops said the side panels are one piece, routed at angles to look like assembled boards. In other words, it’s actually pretty easy to build. Storage drawers in the base feature circular cut-outs for little fingers, and the base could be made lower to the floor for a safer landing. The green short shag rug replicates grass, while the beams and wide board floors add to the outdoor feel. I’m not sure this one will make it to the short list, but it certainly is a neat idea.
