In our house, we are huge Legend of Zelda fans. My granddaughter is not a fan of Disney Princess's, so when I was designing her bedroom I decided to build it around Legend of Zelda. The bed is so cool that I've had grownups ask me to build one for them! The bed is a built in bunk bed. So she always has an extra bed when friends come to visit. The castle is made from MDF and attached to the framework of the bunk bed. Using this design you could build any type of themed bed, fire truck, transformer, etc.

Because the whole piece is based on the room/wall size, I won't be giving you exact measurements. These will vary in your room.

This is also my first "instructable" so please if you have any questions or I've left something out, ask and I'll give you the answer. :)

Materials used:

1 8ft 4x4
2 sheets 4x8 MDF
joist hangers
hinges for door

various decorations

Step 1: Hyrule Bed

The first step would be to clean out the room. If you need to paint the wall around the bed, now is the time. You also need to make make any repairs to the wall or floor at this time. After the bed is built it's almost impossible to get in the frame work to paint or repair or do anything to the floor.

Also you will need to make sure you have the mattress that you want to use for the top and the bottom bunk. You will need the sizes to build the frame.
