Dad Spends 18 Months to Create a Fairytale Looking Room for His Daughter

With 18 months (over 350 hours) hard work, Radamshome, the super dad created a fairytale style bedroom for his daughter. According to Radamshome, this project starts with his daughter’s wish – I wanted a fairy tree in my room that I could sit inside and read books. To be a super dad, Radamshome started this project. Thanks to his working expience – an artist in the video game industry, Radamshome began with a concept drawing and a scale model. Then he started to build tree skeleton. To make the tree strong enough, Radamshome even took some private welding courses and the whole skeleton took him around 100 – 120 hours. After that, Radamshome had to “skin”, “fill” and “paint” the tree to make it looks right. To create some magical effect and made more details, Radamshome wove Christmas lights, capable of being dimmed, into the branches to simulate stars and add some interesting decoration like leave, flowers, butterfly and bird nest on the tree. The end result is so impressive! Take a peek below or have the full progress photos here.
