When I was a kid, a bed shaped like a low-slung race car was the hot item among bedroom decor for young boys. It gained an extra bit of panache by being prominently featured in almost every episode of 'Silver Spoons' as the bed of Ricky Stratton, the rich kid with an arcade in his living room and every cool toy known to man. Here is a much more down to earth take on the same concept, with the added bonus of being handmade by a dedicated dad. Eat your heart out, Stratton!
Jennifer at The Rucker Rendezvous is proud of her husband's hard work in making this bunk bed a reality. After seeing a similar design online he tackled it himself, custom fitting it to their space. Jennifer even went so far to color match the paint to an actual John Deere lawn mower, to get it just right.
No detail is overlooked: lights, a yellow stripe, an exhaust pipe, big tires and the famous John Deere logo make this bed a perfect tribute to the iconic tractor. Of course, the smiles on the kids' faces is all the endorsement this project needs. Nice work!
