Do you and your kid both share a love for sleeping in style, a hatred for galactic terrorist organizations, and have a rather poor understanding on the tactical advantages of a low center of gravity? Then perhaps you should follow the Dutilly family’s example and make him an AT-AT loft bed.
I’m assuming that lightsaber means he is a widdle sweepy sith lord.
Seriously high points on the idea. Race-car beds just got a whole lot lamer (except, again, for the whole low center of gravity thing). There’s actually a few different things I really like about this setup. First, it’s awesome. You can teach and get your kid excited about a legacy that started over 35 years ago. Second, it gives him a space to have some privacy, which lets them you know you respect/trust them, and eventually grows a stronger bond between the two of you. Third, F&#* Hoth, man.
Here’s some more pictures from start to finish, even including a raised leg to appear like it is wobbling along (seriously, was their an imperial engineering strike when they made these plans??). Make sure to go over to the Dutilly Family blog for more pictures.
And if you’re looking for something to keep yourself warm sleeping up there, don’t forget to slice yourself open a tauntaun. Or you can just get this sick tauntaun sleeping bag from the fine folks over at thinkgeek.com .
If this one smells bad on the inside, it’s probably time to grab a shower.
