floating-bed - could do this for a boy to. Cool and fun idea. Gives more play room on the floor and also doesn't create clutter under the bed. Wonder if this would keep my kid from shoving everything under the bed when told to clean his room?
TreeHugger has shown many ways to hide the bed; most are designed to gain more space. But the Red Nest by Paul Coudamay doesn't; the bed is still there taking up space, but is hidden by the sliding bookcase.
For the beach house* river rocks in a box + garden hose = clean feet what a great garden idea! Placed in the sun will heat the stones as well. Great way to wash off little feet covered with grass and dirt before coming inside.
