(the 2 pic in the gallery is from the company makes the castles. I used them for idea..) I HAD TO TAKE OFF THE PICTURES. I made this castle bed for my 3 years old daughter birthday. She turned 3 last week. Took 2 weeks to finish it and about $800-$1000. 13 sheet cabinet grade plywood, 3 sheet mdf, 8 2X4, paint… (The bed part is a full size bed.)The company makes it charges $5000-$60000 for those castles. Can you believe that?

Here are the pic

That is very cool and much nicer than the company’s version. Great job!

Great! I sent this to my wife and not only does she want one for our daughter, but my sister-in-law wants two for her kids. I definitely need a couple of new tools for this one..

That is absolutely STUNNING! I wish I could’ve built something like that for my niece about 5 years ago!
