Our daughter has a very small room. She also LOVES disney princesses. So I wanted to build her a princess castle bed.... but how do you fit a castle bed in a 9x11 bedroom?
There were some plans on Ana's site (good plans), and others on-line. But many of these plans had the bed on the TOP of the castle, and we were concerned with her trying to make her way down if she needed to in the middle of the night.
She also loves her Disney princess canopy bed that she has now... so if I could somehow build the castle around that bed, we'd be set. Which is exactly what we did.
I reviewed several pictures online, and then designed this bed with Sketchup (I LOVE that tool).
There is storage in the stairs, in the towers on the front down below, and in the back up on top. I also put rope lights inside around the ceiling over her bed for that 'Night light Princess glow."
There is also enough room on top for her bed if she wants to put it up there at some point in the future.
The idea for the decoration came from another poster who simply used the Vinyl Disney princess wall decals.
She loves it. Plus its big enough for daddy to read stories to her up in the loft at bedtime!
I've posted the plans on the sketchup warehouse... here is the link...
If you can't find it with that search the sketchup warehouse for 'castle bed.'
