Covered Wagon Toddler Bed finished

This is the Covered Wagon Bed I just finished for my almost 3 year old daughter, Lily.  I didn't have any plans for it so I just went off a picture I found online of a full sized one. I had to adjust it to fit her toddler mattress and make it low enough to the floor so she could get in and out easy enough. The little tool box on the front serves as a foot rest for her when she's sits on the buckboard and also houses diapers or could store a couple of blankets. From the look on her face in this picture I think she likes it. In fact, it was hard to get her crawl out of it after she discovered it. I would say thats a pretty good sign she'll enjoy her naps and bedtime.

    Nothing like being "paid" for your work by way of excitement and smiles...

  5. If you are interested in selling this (if you still have it), please let me know! I am looking for a small covered wagon for my kindergarten classroom to use as a book/reading center and I can't find anything… :(
