Stay Puft Round Bed

Stay Puft Round Bed design by Dave Delisle 2017

Another item I was thinking of creating for the interior of the Ghostbusters Tiny House, a round bed design based on Stay Puft’s sailor hat. It wouldn’t be a life-size replica, but this large bed would be an eye-catching addition to any geek’s bedroom.

I made the red tassle into a headboard for this design, but if you wanted you could ditch the headboard and attach a loose red tassle to the center of the blanket and have it hang over the side, just like the actual hat. Not pictured: white pillows and a white blanket, to blend in with the hat.

On a related note, I’m surprised no one made a round bed based on the OREO cookie. Looking at round beds for my research I was constantly reminded of the cream-filled snack. Now you can share my craving! I’m so evil.

Transformers Bunk Bed

Another bunk bed design, this one based on interim Autobot leader Ultra Magnus. His car carrier/transport alt-mode is ideal for a bunk bed configuration, with the truck cab being used for storage.

If you want to take this idea even further, you could park a few car beds on it (both given an Autobot makeover of course), but that would require an even bigger Ultra Magnus.

Side note: here is a cool Optimus Prime bunk bed that was made for a couple of lucky rugrats.

Star Wars Landspeeder Bed And Other News

Star Wars Landspeeder Bed by davesgeekyideas

Big post today! Like the previous post, here is another bed design that I discarded a few months ago, because several others beat me to the punch. I’m posting it now because I felt there needed to be a design that was more functional and aimed at grown-ups.  Read the rest of this entry

Ghostbusters Bunk Bed

Actually started on this one before the Jurassic Park bunk bed, but stopped because I felt it looked too much like a School Bus. Thought I’d share it now because it’s still fun to look at.

The ladder is usually on the passenger side of the vehicle, however I moved it over for presentation purposes. The front of the Ecto-1 would serve as a trunk for storage.

Jurassic Park Bunk Bed

Here’s a design for kids: a bunk bed based on the Velociraptor cage from the first Jurassic Park film. The box shape and ladder make for a perfect bunk bed.

It features a sliding door that allows access to the lower bed. You could make lift gates at both ends of the bed to match the cage, but I think that would make getting in and out of bed rather annoying.

Some lighting would be helpful for the lower bunk too, if only to recreate the “Raptor getting tased” scene!

I didn’t think of this until now, but several drawers and cubby-holes can also be implemented throughout the bed frame, to help store junk and such.

My only qualm with this design is having to punch out a hole in the bed frame at the top of the ladder, which prevents this from looking exactly like the raptor cage; however that’s in keeping with all bunk bed designs, so safety and accessibility should be considered for a real-life bed.

In summary, the greatest parents ever would make this for their kids.

Breaking Bad Money Bed Sheets

Breaking Bad Money Bed Sheets

Here is a design for your bed sheets that will make them look like stacks of money, specifically the large pile of cash that Huell and Kuby famously laid on top of in Breaking Bad.

There are a million places where you can get custom-printed bedding. Unfortunately a lot of the places I found online look sketchy, or they have production limitations (more on that in a second), or they don’t reply to my email inquiries. I was hoping to make this design a reality, but so far no dice.

The main limitation is that most places will project a single image onto the top of a bed sheet. I want to go a step further and project images onto all sides of the sheet, so you can see the sides of the money wrapped around the sides of the mattress.

If you know of a reputable custom bedding place that can do a “wrapped graphics” approach like this, please let me know in the comments. My goal is to make one for myself and share the art (in several bed sizes) with everyone.

Notes: above is a queen-sized bed, with life-size bills. If I was able to get this made I would include Breaking Bad characters on the bill faces too.

Geeky Beds Part 5: Adventure Time

Jake The Dog Furniture by davesgeekyideas

Seeing as Adventure Time’s Jake The Dog is a shapeshifter, I feel he would make an excellent bed frame. In actuality you could turn him into all kinds of furniture: a couch, dresser, dinner table, and so on. I could literally do a whole series of Jake The Dog furniture but I think you get the idea.
