Hyrule Castle is gone!

The rest of the castle was dismantled today. So sad to see it gone. The walls have been patched and just waiting on them to dry so I can sand them down. Then I will finish painting them grey.

 

 

Patched and drying.

Of course, before I can do the floor, I have to get all the crap out of there. And ALL her crap is still in there.

Some of the wood to make her beds is in there as well. I’m using the wood from the castle since it will be painted. I can’t even start building her beds until it stops raining here. And it’s been raining for a week! But I’m making a bed similar to an IKEA bed.

This is what her floor will look like, only more black.  Photo borrowed from The Beginning of Wisdom.  https://thebeginningofwisdom.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/my-paper-bag-floors/

And that’s where we stand today. Hopefully next week I’ll get more work done.

 

 

Destroying Hyrule Castle

Today  I started destroying Hyrule. Princess Zelda has grown up. Link has requested that the castle walls be reconstructed around his tree house in  Kokiri Forest. I will honor this request.

I know, you are asking yourself what on earth I’m talking about right? The kids have themed bedrooms that I designed for them. Anna’s was Hyrule and the castle (which was actually bunk beds) and Zach’s room was Kokiri Forest.

She’s growing up now and needs a teenager’s room. So we are going with an Anime theme. Kinda

But the destruction has started.

Hello mature, grey, and who knows what else.

It’s sad for me her personal designer to see one of my favorite designs go away, but I think we will both love the new improved grown up room.
