A Dad Wanted To Surprise His Little Girls With The Ultimate Gift, So He Decided To Build This.

This dad wasn't much of a handyman. In truth, he hadn't really tackled a big construction project before. But he wanted to do something nice for his daughters.

So, he thought, what does every princess need?

Easy: a castle.

He used a program called Sketch Up to make the design.

And he made great use of the "measure twice, cut once" rule.

You need a really good jigsaw for this part.

His princesses were still a little rambunctious, so rounding off the edges with a router was a must.


So was sanding off any rough spots.

After making sure the boards were dust-free, it's time for painting.

He prepped the garage so it doesn't also end up pink...

KILZ oil-based paint was the first coat.

It took about 5 gallons to prime the wood.

And took about 3 coats to get it even.

Here are the wood pieces, ready to go.


The slide was a little bit steep, but the girls got the hang of it quickly.

It's a great bed for older kids.

The oldest sleeps on the top bunk and the youngest on the bottom.

A little accent lighting brings it to life.

And this adorable stairway.

A perfect castle for two little princesses.
