VW Bus Monochrome Superhero Big Boy Room!


Landon's big boy room is finally done! After over a year of hard work, my fiancee designed and built my son his dream bed-- a VW bus bunk bed designed after our own real life '73 VW camper van!  I'm just in awe of my amazing fiancee, I mean no detail was spare... This bus/bed comes complete with a speaker system, built in radio, iPad hook up, working fans and headlights that turn on, actual parts from a VW bus (rearview mirror, bumper, etc.) and VW bus key that fits in the ignition! This really was a labor of love and my son couldn't be happier about the outcome :-)

To complement the VW bus and really let it shine as the centerpiece of the room, we painted the room a neutral light grey and used mainly a monochrome color scheme with fun pops of color here and there.  And of course we had to include my son's love of legos and superheroes as the main inspiration for the rest of the room :)

Love this bed and am actually going to tackle it myself. I am not as handy as your guy so I am wondering if he has the plans for the wood and sizes? I would pay for the plans if you have them? Thank you so much, Ronni
