Are you ready to discuss the "Pirate Ship Revenge" room? 'Cause I am.
Like Vanessa Williams, I went and saved the best for last.
I hate that song.
Remember this headboard the Daddy-o and Mommy-o made?
This is pretty awesome, in and of itself, no?
Well, let's take a little look-see in it's final resting place:
Well, one other thing that I love that the Mommy-o and Daddy-o did, was that they've put/they're putting a vanity table in every bedroom.
And you know I love that:
Isn't this mirror so fun? It's hanging from pulleys the Daddy-o made. The mirror is totally vintage-- if memory serves me correctly, I believe it was my great grandmother's mirror. I think the parental units were disappointed that it didn't clean up completely. I think it makes it all the more cool.
Here's where the parents got crazy with the cheese whiz.
The Pirate Ship Revenge bed wasn't enough for this room. Oh ho, no. Remember that they have 16 grandchildren that they would love to accomodate.
It was then that the Mommy-o thought of the huge, grandiose plans of making a Pirate Ship Bunkbed.
Daddy-o sketched 'em out while he was at my place one day:
(Oh ma gosh I feel so special!)
And he got to work. I wanna tell you a few things about this Pirate Ship Bunkbed.
This thing is huge; it spans an entire wall. Daddy-o had saved a lot of finial/balluster thingys over the years, and now he knows why. They were perfect for this project.
This also had to be taken apart, labeled piece by piece for reconstruction when brought up to the Lakehouse,
and brought up in two separate loads because it is that big.
This, is half.
Are ya ready to see it?
So how many beds does this Pirate Ship have?
Not one, not two. . .
I pity the poor fool who sleeps in this room with all the cousins who will surely wanna have a "sleepover" in here each night.
And finally, the room in it's entirety:
Voila. To say my kids were excited would be a big understatement.
the 'rents are low on inspiration for another bedroom. What say ye? Any thoughts?
Think sailboat headboard:
This is being done, fo sho. But anything else goes. Shark bed? A lighthouse bed? Anyone, anyone? Bueller?
So? Something fun? Thoughts? Ideas? Inspiration? Possibilities? Possible investors?
