Big Boy Bed

It is a big day for Wyatt today! He gets his Big Boy Bed! He is so excited! We got the bed at Habitat for Humanity for $28 a couple weeks ago. It is a steel bed and very solid. Just needed some TLC. I kind of liked the way it looked originally, but it had a lot of rust, so I ended up painting it.
{Before}

{Nick sanded down the rusty spots for me}
Today we went and got the mattress and box springs. We kind of looked a little hillbilly with them strapped to the roof of our car… but we were able to get them home.
{Finished!}



{Had to test it out!}



I didn’t realize how tall it is after it was all put together. We are going to have to get a swimming noodle to put underneath the sheet to help him from rolling off the edge. It is a MUCH bigger fall with this bed! I am also hoping this will renew our desire for naps too! I know, I am probably not going to see that, but I can hope can’t I?
