I am tellin' you,
the Mommy-o and the Daddy-o have been busting out thee most amazing projects as of late.
I simply must show you their newest completion. Must.
Remember how they bought a house by the lake?
(again, note that this is a boat by the lake, but not the house. Thank you.)
And remember that I showed you the lighthouse by the house at the lake?
Well, they've been workin' their bunsies off to give every room in that house a certain, awesome "look".
Allow me to show you their inspiration for the latest room:
Yes, friends-- a totally bad to the bone "Ship-Bed."
Hmm. There has to be a cooler name for that.
"The Black Pearl."
"The Captain's Dingy."
"Pirate Bed". Huh.
"The Pirate Ship Revenge". Yee-hee-hee-yeah!!
"“Good night, Westley. Good work. Sleep well. I’ll most likely kill you in the morning."
Sorry. Getting back on track, here.
Wanna see it all built?
Oh, I'm such a tease.
Quizzed the Daddy-o on every inch of the construction. And while I could go on and on, I simply must tell you that this:
lovely, curved and fluted piece of wood is a freaking 2 by 4.
Okay. The post construction shot. Ta da.
I know, right?
See it with paint and completely finished? Oh wait, hold up.
Check out my crappy shot of the badical lanterns. They will be wired in their final resting place for bedroom lighting.
I love how the paint turned out:
And the finale. . . . drumroll please. . .
Et voila. To all my siblings: I call dibs on the Pirate Ship Revenge Room. Suckers.
