Toddler Bed Rail

So our 3-year-old boy, Brayden, finally made the switch to a big boy bed full-time! Of course we needed bed rails to keep our rambunctious little one from rolling out of bed at night so of course, like usual, we made them ourselves. Custom fitted to his bed, these bed rails are not only sturdy as heck but they are a nice wooden alternative to the cheap plastic looking rails that are all over the place. The best part about is that we made these for about $15 a piece!
