Description: My second son has a passion for cars, so the idea of recycling the bed of his older brother and turn it into a firetruck. I have added some plywood to create the door and the window, I set on the wheels of an old toy car and have painted in red, grey and white the different part of the “truck”.
I have equipped the bed with a little fire extinguisher, flashlights on the top, a garden hose and some stickers. On the wall I painted a skyline with bright acrylic colors and in the sky I made the “Ikea sun” shine!!
