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.

Floating Star Wars Landspeeder Bed

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.

The side engines are drawers, the top engine is a foldaway lamp. The sides of the mattress could be enclosed into the Landspeeder, but my preference is for an unobstructed mattress.

The bed would float from a small box frame underneath, or clear acrylic feet shown here. LED running lights could be placed underneath, which is all the rage with floating beds nowadays.

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

Jurassic Park raptor cage bunk bed design by Dave Delisle

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 design by Dave Delisle dave's geeky ideas davesgeekyideas

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.

The sheets are printed in a way that the front and sides of the money bundles are projected onto the sides of the mattress. It should look good, if the images are aligned properly.

Gearhead Bedroom Design

Hydraulic Car Lift bed by Dave's Geeky Ideas

Here is a design for the gearheads. The bed frame is based on a car lift; the dresser is based on a tool drawer; and finally a light that is based on the one mechanics use to look underneath cars with (well, it could be the exact same light to be honest). You could even park a car-shaped bed on the lift.
