We’re in complete awe of the dad who built this fairy tree bedroom for his daughter. Come see how he did it and peruse a whole house-load of other amazing kids’ rooms.
The father, an artist in the video game industry, spent 350 hours and quite a bit of cash creating the magical room. But what price a smooth bedtime, right?
