Any ideas for a bedroom?

I am a 16 year old who loves math,science,and electronics(and programming).I have to design my new room(a 14'x20' empty space right now) and am out of ideas.I tried searching the site for some cool ideas,but my searching skills are pretty bad and all I could find was some secret hidden compartments(which is more than cool btw),and a study table.My woodworking skills are not very good,but I can get almost anything done with a little help from my awesome neighbour,and I think my knowledge in electronics is decent enough for some basic home automation.Do you have any cool ideas i could work on?Any help would be really appreciated :D tl;dr  designing room,need ideas thanks

Ultimate Pirate Ship Bedroom

Pirate ship bedroom? Shiver me timbers! Designer Steve Kuhl used 2x12 ribs to construct the hull of the ship, covering them with layers of 1/2 inch plywood to act as the planking. "But that's not all. The room is also decked out with a rope bridge that connects the pirate ship to the top of a jail cell, and a rope suspended from the ship's hull provides drop-in access to the closet. There's also a completely hidden spiral slide, that lets you travel downstairs in a more adventurous way." Check out this pirate ship bedroom, there's 14 pictures that show the bedroom from all angles and even a computer model that illustrates the spiral slide. via: mymodernmet.com

Ideas for a Nature/Jungle style bedroom?

Hello everyone, I'm getting a new bedroom and i'm looking for ideas on how to decorate it. The walls are light green and i really like a Nature/Jungle type of style. I also like the use of bamboo, wood, and big natural rocks and stones. A bit like this: http://dornob.com/magic-mushroom-private-retro-rustic-mountain-lodge/?ref=search But with some more plants and green colours. I'd like ideas on wall decorations, lamps, desks, beds or anything else you can think of. I'm also a bit of a geek, so natural or jungle themed speakers, or other computer accessories would look awesome. It's not gonna be a kid's bedroom, so keep that in mind Let your mind go wild!

i have a huge blank wall. what in the world could i do with it?

Something on the cheaper side would be great to fill it up. I don't really have any decorations in my room to be truthfull. I like my bed, that's the only thing I put care into. Lots of pillows. I also have two huge windows with long brown curtains if that helps. But the wall across from my bed is big and blank!

Little girl's bedroom with Hacked-Ikea bed

My two year old outgrew her "Princess Toddler bed" and it was time to move her to a regular bed. She has gone from Cradle, to interim playpen, to crib, to fire truck toddler bed (because it was the one with the highest sides we could find when she started jumping out of her crib at 10 months), then to princess bed.. Even though the rest of our house is decorated using modern decor, I really wanted to keep the "French" theme I did when I originally setup her nursery... Because this was her 6th bed, the thought of spending $899 and up for a bed in this category (and not even made out of wood) I got discouraged and decided to buy an inexpensive IKEA bed. When I arrived at IKEA and started looking through the options, again I decided to hold off and not buy anything. As I was leaving the store, I found various items on sale. One of the items was an unfinished bed, for $30!!!! The bed was low to the ground like we needed it. The unfinished wood was not something I wanted, but for $30 I could live with it. At home depot, I purchased decorative wood applique's for the headboard and the foot board ($12 for both). On my way to the cash register I discovered that home depot sells pre-fab unfinished table legs. These legs would make perfect posts for a bed!!! I glued the appliques, screwed and glued the legs in. Then I went online and ordered Milk Paint (non-toxic, no smell, natural paint) in cream and also in white... A few days later it arrived, and I was able to paint the entire bed in about 2 hours (with re-coats). I am very happy with the results. Her room is "a work in progress, her bed is done.

Making a 12v room lamp.

We have a quite a few 6v batteries here at work that we get rid of once their voltage drops below what our equipment is able to use.  Normally we recycle them but I was trying to see if there is a better way to get some use out of them on my own.  Ultimately, I'd like to try and eliminate the need for the plug in lamp I use to light my bedroom. I'm far from an electrical genius but I found some low wattage LED bulbs that looked like they might be usable.  What I was basically thinking of doing was hooking few of the old batteries together, regulating the output to 12v, and then wire up one of the low wattage bulbs.  I also have access to solar panels used to charge the same batteries so getting that added in to the mix would be my next step.

How best to circulate wood insert heat into the bedrooms at the end of the house?

We have a decent size wood insert with dual squirrel cage fans in the center of the house on the ground floor.  It does a good job of heating the room its in, however none of the satellite rooms nor the upstairs bedrooms get much heat.  We have central air,  would running the system on circulate help, or will that just pull the warmest air out of each room (the returns are up high)?  Ultimately, I'd love an air/water heat exchanger to plumb into our HVAC but that doesn't seem practical from a house layout, expense or cosmetic perspective.

Mancave help

Hey forums, im new to instructables. I really need some help and ideas for my mancave which I am going to build. It's going to be in my bedroom, which is now just a room with a bed and some desks, but it has the potential and largeness to become a nice chill loungy man cave. I'm going to get a bigger 2 person bed this summer, and i get a tv for my birthday ( I hope). basicly the biggest problem is the construction of the room. I have a big shelf on the wall but it is occupied by lots of books from my childhood and from my brother(who is moved out already) and my parents. It's really annoying since we rebuilt the house and I got that room with a brand new shelf but my parents filled it with their stuff already :P. The majority of this stuff is moving or thrown away so its not a big problem. I will provide a plan of my room now and how i plan to make it. Basicly the things i really want in my room are these 1. tv 2. couch 3.speakers ( i have them but i want marley bag of riddim) 4. coffee table 5. mini fridge 6. fan 7. ps3 8. hookah. I have most of this stuff (except for the mini fridge, fan and couch) but the main thing is the way they are put in the room. Again i will provide plans of the room. Sorry for bad English, i'm not from England or US :D Terribly sorry about the pictures being reverted, i dont know how to revert them, so you have to do it if you want to see it :((( so sorry

How can i turn comic book pages into a wallpaper for my room? Answered

Hey guys, i have this spiderman comic that my brother got me for christmas and it happens to be all in french. I cannot read french but still love the comics (hence why he got it for me.) So i had the idea of turning the pages from the comic book into a wallpaper for my room. The general idea was i would cut each page out of the comic book, stick it to my wall one next to the other and then if possible put some sort of covering over the top to protect the pages. this would mean that bumps and such actions would not harm the wallpaper. Any ideas on how i should stick these pages on as well as cover them all? I have been told i could stick them onto card and then paste that onto the wall but still i dont think that would be as easy.?

The odor is primarily in the master bedroom and is more noticable now that the windows are closed and furnace is being used.  Do not smell it anywhere else in the house.  The smell reminds us of what rail-road ties smell like, the creosote specifically.  Am worried that it may be something serious and cause more difficulty with my breathing (I suffer from allergy induced asthma) and do not want to have to any issues.
