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.



more coming . . .

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!

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.

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!!

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.
