DIY – Batmobile Bed

Little boys LOVE Superheroes!

As most little boys do, my Coby loves superheroes, so of course, when we got our house, we committed to giving him a superhero room.

Right around that time, my mom scored a sweet racecar bed at a garage sale.

This is the one she got.

While it was great on its own, Coby wanted his superhero room, and this just wasn’t gonna cut it. So, I decided to turn this racecar into a Batmobile!

I snagged a very reasonably priced vinyl dry erase peel and stick roll from Amazon.  We live in an apartment so peel and stick is always the way to go where possible.  The great thing about purchasing a roll versus a solid board, is that you can divide it up into as many smaller boards (or various shapes) as desired.  I actually cut the roll into three separate pieces (one to be used in the kitchen – more on that later), and the other two in the boys’ room.
