How To Make A Cute Trundle Bed

Are you struggling with a small shared space for your children as much as I did? Then this article is for you, in this blog post I will share How To Make A Cute Trundle Bed so your children can still enjoy their small space.

My daughter (7) and son (5) share a small room, therefore they slept in toddler beds for quite some time, until one day my daughter said, “MOM, I can touch the end of my bed with my toes”. That’s when I started thinking about other options, a bunk bed, trundle, or futon maybe? However, the layout of the kids’ room limited me even within those options.

We had looked everywhere for beds, with no luck. Living overseas is not always as glamorous as it seems, things like beds can’t be shipped to us from the states, bed measurements are different depending on the country you are in, and I had something specific in mind for the look of our bed. Building a trundle seemed like a great plan the more I thought about it.

A few weeks later I contacted Jen from to see if she had plans or if she would like to make me the plans for a trundle. This lady not only had plans, but she also adjusted them to fit our needs.

Hope you are ready for the cutest trundle there is?

Let’s just blame the sander for now, other than that this could be a really fun project for a husband and wife team.

Ok, let’s look at the last few steps before I show you the finished bed.
