This was a slight "My Roommate Isn't Around To Think I'm Weird" kind of craft project. I just wanted to make something to diffuse the light a little so that I can sleep better. Oh, and I wanted a fort. Cheesy





As I am not at home, I didn't have all the necessary craft supplies (fishing line would have been perfect, and wood glue probably would have also been helpful) so it is currently held together by duct tape, which is mostly hidden, and blue yarn, which is not so hidden.

There's a second phase to the project which involves painted wooden stars hanging from the canopy, but I haven't gotten that far yet, and I may not because I think I like it like it is.

The only thing that helps me maintain my slender grip on reality is the friendship I share with my collection of singing potatoes.

Awesome! I was telling my friend how much I want to turn my bed into a fort. After seeing how nice yours is, I might just have to do it too!  Wink
