When you were a kid and you saw people on television with incredible bedrooms, you probably got jealous. You wondered what you needed to do in order to get a cool room like that. You’d beg your parents to give your room a makeover — a bunk bed at the least!
Well, this dad listened to his daughter’s pleas and built her an amazing fantasy room. You need to see this to believe it. Even full-grown adults will feel the pangs of jealousy.
This was his daughter’s old room. Plain, uninspired, and drab.
So this dad sketched out an amazing room plan for his daughter and got to work.
He measured out where everything needed to be in order to build it correctly.
Then he began crafting a steel skeleton. He used steel rebar and rods from Home Depot.
Steel rings were used for the branches — those would come later, though.
Here is the general outline of the tree he was building.
Needless to say, it took a lot of hard work.
With the skeleton completed, it was time to bring the thing to life!
He wrapped the skeleton with expanded metal lathe.
I think she likes how it’s coming along.
Lights were installed in key places.
He then applied concrete and papier–mâché on the branches to give them an authentic look and feel.
Then he started painting the tree — he took tons of photos of trees to really nail the look.
But he didn’t stop at the tree! He began painting the walls…
Added hardwood floors…
And left some room for “grass” to be added later.
Here is what those little lights ended up looking like — he calls them fairy lights.
He added some leaves for authenticity.
And here’s the finished product!
His little girl seems to enjoy it a lot.
It took this dad a long time to complete the room and you can tell. It looks like he is a crazy perfectionist. Hopefully his little girl appreciates it for a long time!
