Surf and Beach Themed Bedroom

This project started with my son having the need for a loft bed. I began building the framing with some 2x4s and my imagination took over. The more I built, the more ideas and details I thought would be cool for whole theme. After finishing the "surf shack" loft, i moved to creating custom made fan blades, switch plates, placards, etc to fit the theme. It was all finished off by installing built-in shelves and painted walls.

Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used
Watered down black paint applied and then wiped off to bring out grain and knots. Finish coat of Minwax Weathered Gray Stain.

That came out really nice. Love all the added touches. Good use of that corner with shelves. We had a bigger niche like in our kitchen where we put shelves as well. The icing is the custom fan blades! Very clever!
