This Dad Built an Actual Tree in His Daughter's Bedroom
When your little girl comes bounding into the living room and says, "Daddy, I want to live in a fairy-tale forest, and I want to live in it now," you don't actually nod your head and set to work making one for her. That would be pure insanity — and not just because next month, she'll demand a One Direction-themed bedroom, and the week after that, she'll be begging for a chic black-and-white minimalist aesthetic. It'd also be pure insanity because we found a parent out there who did, in fact, build his daughter an actual tree in her bedroom, and it's a DIY project so intense, it'd make the most practiced Pinterest users sign off, never to return again.
"My daughter wanted a fairy tree in her room that she could sit inside and read books, climb the branches, and also have a top sitting area," the handy father wrote on Imgur. "I was kind of unprepared for the physical realities of this project. I used Disney set design as my inspiration. Even though it was difficult, I learned a huge amount along the way. It turned out pretty well, and she's so happy in her new room!"
Well, she better be. The project cost a whopping $4,250 and took 350 hours, mostly on weekends or at night over the past 18 months. From start to incredible finish, see the work that went into this magical bedroom. And for a complete look at every step, see all the photos on Imgur.
