In this instructable my daughter, Holly, and I will demonstrate how to build a very nice, fully functional, miniature stage for wanna-be pop-stars. The cost of this stage only $35, with almost no wasted materials. The size of the stage is totally up to you it can easily be made into larger and/or modular sections.
Every couple of years we, the wife and I, change the theme in our children's bedrooms. Holly is now into the DIVA Pop-star theme. My over all goal is to transform her room in to a mini-Pop-star club.
I thought it would be a good idea to have a stage for her to stand on while performing. In order to do this and save money it was important to utilize current assets. For instance my first plan was to use her computer as a Karaoke machine, while utilizing her PC camera to make her own sing along pop video. I did find free Karaoke software but finding quality music was difficult. We just went with a karaoke machine to save ourselves all of the other trouble. It came with one microphone, but I bought her a microphone and stand that would plug into the machine. Now both she and a friend can sing together.
I have many more upgrades to add to her room but this is the first of the projects that I have built. So of course I had to make an instructable for everyone else so they can build their own version. I really hope this will inspire others to build their own or create some kind of spin-off idea.
Lets get started.
The only thing missing from this instructable is a picture or video of her actually using it, which I hope to get really soon, so hang it there.
