Jumpstart Your Day: A Beetle Bed

See how a dedicated Dad transformed old car parts


We're all familiar with old furniture pieces repurposed into new home must-haves—like for example, an old dinner table turned into a coffee table. How about car parts? Can these be transformed into something else?

A father wanted to surprise his little girl for her birthday. With a plan of creating a bed for his daughter, he came up with the idea of using old Volkswagen Super Beetle car parts for his project. See more photos below.

The old car parts used were found in a classfied advertisements website.

From afar, the finished piece looks like any other vehicle in the garage.

The purchased car parts were added to give the bed a unique vibe.

How comfy is this bed? The upper bunk looks comfy and relaxing. The lower part was transformed into a cozy nook where the little girl can enjoy her books and toys.

To complete the project and to minimize the costs, the father also used materials found in his garage. The headlights can also be turned on at night.
