Many little girls (and some little boys) dream of living in a pink princess castle. One woodcrafting, handy dad made his daughter”s dream come true by building her the coolest bed frame ever. Complete with tall towers, a lofted mattress, and a secret compartment for toys and books, even most adults would be seriously jealous of this kid”s setup. Check out the step-by-step guide to princess perfection below.
The main frame of the bed and the details were made out of maple plywood.
First he built the decorative front of the castle.
The towers aren”t just there for the look; they serve as shelves to hold books and toys.
They would also hold the mattress up.
Here, you can see him connecting the towers to the face of the castle.
Then he started building the sides.
Here”s the entirely assembled frame.
Here, you can see the slats for the mattress.
Before adding the paint, he sanded it down.
To paint, he took the frame apart.
The finished frame featured pretty pink details.
When it was finished, it was the coolest kid”s bed ever.
The inside features a toy storage area.
The ladder provides easy access to the mattress.
The kids promptly kicked Dad out once they were allowed to play on it.
Even as a grown adult, I wish I had a bed frame like this. This dad deserves the father of the year award, complete with his own tiara.
