Toddler Trundle Bed

I recently auditioned for SYTYC and this is the project I submitted.  This project was inspired by a scared child who comes to her parents' bed in the middle of the night.  It's almost impossible to sleep with a child and not have an elbow or foot in the middle of your back or face.  I thought wouldn't it be great if we had a toddler size trundle bed to go under our bed.

A very simple project using 1x4's, casters, jute webbing and foam.  This lightweight trundle bed has a foam mattress that sits upon a woven jute webbed frame.  The casters allow for it to roll out easily from under the bed by pulling on the silver nickel handle. I finished it off by making a cute little pillow and comforter.

Be on the lookout for a tutorial on how to make this bed.  It should be posted in the next few days.


  1. Its Lauren... (necklace storage) i love this! What a great idea!

  2. Thanks Lauren. I'm excited to be doing SYTYC with you and all the other wonderful ladies.

  3. This is a great idea. We have my daughter on a yoga mat and blankets at the end of our bed most nights, so this would be a great replacement : ) though she has finally outgrown a toddler bed, so we would no longer fit this size. But I love your design.

  4. This is so great my son's always coming into my bed he has his own but prefers to ko with me still. It's such a great pull out that I've been liking for.
