Does your child dream about a playhouse bed, but you don’t want to spend thousands on furniture that they will outgrow?  You can build a dream bed, even if you don’t have a ton of tools or a big budget!

We just built this treehouse bed for my 5 year old son using just a drill and saw – and it turned out awesome!

It was a seriously easy build, with just a saw to cut the boards and a drill and some screws to put it all together.  We spent about $200 on materials – a similar bed could be five times as much!


Woodland or Forest Themed Boys Room

Our son loves the outdoors and feels most comfortable when in the woods.  The bed itself is designed to look like a treehouse or treefort.

We built around the woodland or forest theme by adding elements that complimented.  Here’s the source links for your convienience.

We are debating adding our son’s name to the front of the bed in wood letters too – we will post photos if we make that modification.
