Project of the Day...

Since moving back to Texas we have been doing SO many projects - from tiling, stripping wallpaper, laying wood floor, etc. - but none of those are completely done - so, I needed to do a quick project from start to finish. So, I decided to convert the lower portion of a bunk bed into "a galaxy far, far away". This project was quick and easy - it can be done with comic strip characters, 'Spiderman' fabric, or fabric for 'Hot Wheels' cars to play on!


I bought 15/32" plywood ($17.95) and 2.5 yards of fabric ($10.82 on sale) - Then layered an old sheet under the print fabric (to insure there will be no splinters in our galaxy) and used a staple gun to put it all together!

Our little man loves, loves, loves all things Star Wars. Thus I decided he needed a full play space for his little Jedi, the Millenium Falcon and various other ships that I cannot name.


The finished product with all the colors and planets was a bit busy for me... but our little man loves it!

What a clever use of space! I will have to keep this in mind for the future.

Thanks 'a Mother Heart'!

For your group of girls it might be better set up as a dollhouse, a horse pasture, polly pockets land or something else... but it has helped him keep the toys off the floor and I have been able to vacuum in his room! Yeah!

Super cute. I love it.

Got your call late last night by the way. Today has been crazy and I just got home. I love your idea. This weekend, though, K is with her dad the entire time. I'll call you.

That's a great way to use the bottom area of the bunk! I'm sure he loves it and gives more place area! Clever idea!
