When parents pass on their adoration of Star Wars to their kids, magic happens. They can have lightsaber fights and practice using the Force together, and they can plot a bedroom makeover. Constructing a Millennium Falcon cockpit and turning it into a bed is a tried and true decor improvement we've seen before, and Redditor Dericrw is continuing the tradition. Via Geeks Are Sexy, Dericrw and his wife gave their kids' room a galactic makeover, and the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy is the centerpiece.
Be sure to flip through the entire album. It so isn't garbage.
The Falcon's bolted to the ceiling, so it's not jumping into lightspeed anytime soon, but it looks ready. Dericrw and his wife went all in, spending about a month working on the room's design and construction. The spaceship is surrounded by a Star Wars mural, an Imperial-style pillbox LED wall, and the bed itself has a cockpit area that would be the most perfect place to read. If I were one of the parents in this situation, I'd consider booting the kids to the master bedroom so I could have the Millennium Falcon to myself. Only a twin-size bed fits inside the construction, but look, we all have to make sacrifices.
