The Princess Room and Castle Bed
 
My wife had this hair brained idea that we could build my daughter a bed when we moved her into her new room... Now the "we" part actually meant "me", but this is usually the kind of thing I go over board on. She sent me a picture one day from work. Oh boy, she was challenging me this time and I accepted.

So I took off to Home Depot and $350 in wood later... The insanity began.

Now I had one request from my wife... no slide, oh the joy kill. I was bumbed. lol

once I had it completed in the garage, I had to take it back apart and find a way to get it up stairs. Now I have an older house, so the stairs were a little steep... not allowing the stair section through the door and up the stairs. So I had to remove a window on the back side of the house last week. No problem other then the fact it was only 7 degrees here in Michigan. BRRRRRR

On goes the paint... The daughter picked pink and purple, a very light pink and purple...

So, I had to get creative to help keep it from being a bit of a nightmare.

That all for now, more updates to come. As you can see, my oldest princess is happy so far.

After the bed is complete, the room will get a 360 degree mural. Should be done before shes 21... lol

I have a few smudges to clean up, but all in all I'm happy.


The room will have Cinderellas castle along with all the princesses. She also wants a few other characters. I really dont have a game plan, so I hopeit doesn't turn out to be a mess. Time will tell.

Fantastic job so far! Are you freehand sketching the characters or using an opaque projector of any type? You've got some talent there, Sir! :artist:

ArcticCat 02-07-2013 12:23 PM

Projector for the characters, so I get everything as close as possible and free hand the rest. The projector is a normal presentation projector, attached to my laptop.

That's fantastic! I want to be 7!
She'll never forget that.

Just beautiful!! And a lovely princess to sleep in it! Great job, dad! She will always remember it. I have a shelf my dad built for me with princesses all over it, 42 years and going strong. :0)

Awesome job!!

BernardandMissBianca 03-01-2013 04:54 PM

chipdale74 03-02-2013 08:36 PM

annawilliams 03-04-2013 12:52 PM

Sheesh! Can I have one of these? Ha! It's amazing! Great work!

Awesome job!!!

Btw, like your Google Sketch Up model. I'm an architecture major, and there is a debate in the architectural community about whether or not Google Sketch Up is a good tool. Some argue that it's too basic. However, there are actually a good number of firms that use Google Sketch-Up, then render in Photoshop (a style which I like to use myself). But IMO, the best thing about Google Sketch Up is its simplicity (with everything but curves... ugh) - a child could use it. And it's a good medium to use to generate ideas from professionals and non-professionals.
