Phoebe's Castle bed

Submitted by acopier on Mon, 05/26/2014 - 19:51

With thanks to others that had posted before me. I took my inspiration from all the Castle beds I could find and customized this Castle Bed for my Granddaughters room. We made the bottom bed full size and the top twin size. She has a closet on the inside and two bedside tables. The slide lifts for additional storage. We made a cloud ceiling filled with a moon and stars that all glow in the dark. I used 3 18' rope lights that operate By remote control. Since I did not have enough space to add the stairs in the room I built the bed, I made the arched window on the right side to be used as a ladder. The steps are next. This took 8 months, 10 sheets of plywood and ultralight MDF. a few hundred board feet of pine, 5 gallons of paint and primer, 350 biscuits. About 1,500 Grandma and Grandpa hours of pure love.

Thanks again for everyone's inspiration.

No plans I measured as I went.

Absolutely beautiful right down to every little detail! What a lucky little girl to not only have that amazing bed but to have such devoted loving grandparents! You really can see how much love went into every bit of that build!
