Avast sleeping! Haul the main closet!

Pretty much the most awesome bedroom ever. The Deeplings’ secret headquarters looks just like this! (via Metafilter)

Designer Steve Kuhl fulfills every boy’s fantasy with this insanely cool pirate ship bedroom. [BOY?! This grown woman wants it NOW! -Miriam] The six-year-old occupant from Minnesota chose between a space ship, race car, castle, and pirate ship. Most of us would probably agree, he made an excellent decision.

The main feature of the room is the incredible floating pirate ship. Kuhl used 2×12 ribs to construct the hull of the ship, covering them with layers of 1/2 inch plywood to act as the planking. A bomb-proof blend of plaster and epoxy with integrated coloring was used simulate an old ship’s hull.

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.

  1. Oh. My. God. I would TOTALLY act out the “Ariel watching Eric on the ship during the tempestuous ocean conditions then falling off and being rescued” scene from the Little Mermaid if I had this bedroom.

  2. Wow… I was reading Yahoo this morning, and was absolutely stunned when I saw the pictures of the SHIP n a BEDROOM!!!!! WHAT??? Simply amazing, what a talent!!!
