When it was time to transition Noah from the crib to a toddler bed, we may have gone a little overboard! But at the time, he was our only child and we were excited! Excited for his new big boy status, excited for more sleep, and excited for the fun he would have in his new bed! At the time, his favorite movie was Disney’s Cars and he absolutely loved Lightning McQueen. The hope was that his love for the character would transfer over to his love for the bed!
Long story short, he LOVED his bed! And as he grew, so did the bed. It started out with a toddler mattress and a toy chest on the end. Once he out grew that, the toy chest came off and we bought a twin mattress. This versatility was one of the main reasons we loved this bed.
Almost two years later, and our big[ger] boy was ready for a new theme. If you know Noah, then you know that the only theme that made sense was Superheroes! We knew we didn’t want to get rid of his bed, but what my husband put into motion was just genius. The plan was to turn his Lightning McQueen car into Batman’s batmobile! #Winning
The best part of the whole thing was Noah’s involvement with the project. At the time, we were just about 6 weeks away from welcoming his new baby brother. We had been working on getting things ready for the baby’s nursery and it was nice to turn the focus to Noah. He helped out with every stage of the project and even did some personalized artwork!
Scroll through the pictures to see how our DIY Superhero Room Redux turned out!
We painted his walls with a skyscraper scene! Every Superhero has to have a city to save. Again, talented hubby drew out the scene and then taped out the sketch so we could paint it.
The dresser that was in Noah’s room had to be moved into the baby’s room because it was part of the crib set. So we bought a used dresser and upcycled it to be this one of a kind Superhero dresser!
Hobby Lobby has an amazing Superhero section where we got most of the artwork and décor for his room. There was one piece that was handmade by our boy!
This masterpiece added just the right amount of personal touch! They make time stand still and we’ll treasure them forever.After all is said and done, the only things we purchased were the materials to paint the bed, the used dresser, and the wall art! We’re so proud of how this room turned out! Noah loves it, we love it, and we hope you all love it too!
