It Started As A Little Girl’s Very Normal Bedroom. Wait Til You See What Her Dad Did… Holy Cow!

, , , ,

What this amazing father decided to build for his daughter will put a huge smile on your face. He build her her very own castle bed, complete with a bunch of neat features like a slide, a computer desk area fitted with its own desk lamp, bookshelves and of course, a layer of pink paint (which she picked for herself).

I’m a grown man and I’m very jealous of her new castle bed, just take a look for yourself.

The original space before the magic happened.

Some very basic measurements. He needed to know how much wood was needed, but mostly wanted to make sure the ceiling fan wasn’t going to be in the way or in a place it could potentially hurt her.

Not the best work space but he made work for some basic cuts

The width all worked out…

…and the length.

The start of the frame.

Frame from the front.

So far she loves it! Computer desk needed of course.

She could hardly wait for him to finish to play Minecraft on the computer.

So he put her to work.

The slide and ladder area has been set.

Ladder in place, mattress ready!

Add some MDF layered walls (It’s light, easy to cut and cheaper than plywood).

Original slide angle turned out to be dangerously fast, so against her wishes (she loved the rocket slide) her father had to adjust the angle twice before she no longer needed cushions to collide with.

Another small window added in.

A splash of color.

Then the final touches, a blanket as a curtain door and a bunch of stuffed animals.

Here’s the finished product. Can’t see it very well but her “secret” entrance/exit is at the end of the slide behind another purple blanket door.

To quote the movie Step Brothers: Now she’ll have…”SO MUCH ROOM FOR ACTIVITIES!”


Share this story if like me you are both impressed by that father’s amazing dedication to his daughter, and maybe just a little bit jealous of her awesome castle bed.
