This was my oldest sons bedroom when we lived in Virginia. I need to find the picture that I used for inspiration, it would help explain the lightning. Here all you see is an empty room really, but all his furniture was painted red with blue spider webbing as well. Even though it is a bit dark he loved it.

I locked my wife and son out for three days and built the bed and painted the room. I started the spiderman figure but never finished before we moved.

I really enjoyed the airbrushing the lighting, though it did take awhile as the vertigo kept causing me to want to throw up or fall over. I have a much better understanding now of what we as human beings go through when we get older.

The bed is made from had picked construction grade doug fir. I went through the stack and got the best ones I could find.

Thanks Chrisstef,

Yes he was very happy and excited! I was not as dard with all the red furniture, toys and Spiderman posters, so it was a much happier room.

Very Respectfully,

Nate

Nate, you have outdone your self!! Looks like you found a niche for specialty beds. I don’t know of anyone else in that business and it could be lucrative!!Also, you could park the tablesaw and do more with that air brush…you are good!!!!!!!.................Jim

that is pretty awesome, I can only imagine your sons response. So did you paint the new room to match the bed when you moved?

Thank you very much. You are very kind. This was my first airbrush painting. I have allot left to learn!:) It is a ton of fun though.

The bed…hmm I have never considered it before…interesting idea:)

Very Gratefully,

Nate
