Twilight Sparkle Bed by ColdCalzone Twilight Sparkle Bed by ColdCalzone
So this year, I decided by popular vote to make Twilight Sparkle's bed!

It's a queen sized bed standing at about 8" high off the ground with an extra 8" for the mattress
The footboard is about 12" tall, and the headboard is about 30" tall

It was modeled after this picture, and I did my best to color it as correctly as possible. I originally started with walnut, but the coloring was too dark for me to attain the correct colors, plus it seemed like a bit of a waste, so I decided to make it out of Alder, and dye it. I love the results, especially with the rich, red color that it brings out. I probably should have put in a little more purple, but after looking at some photos, I think I made the right decision. it's hollow, and suprizingly sturdy and light. Overall, I'm really happy with how it turned out, but we'll see how the eBay auction goes!

where do you live?
I'm going to say 400 at least for the bed and shipping would be probably 250-350 depending on where you live.
Local pickup is always an option.

that is cost of materials, and is non-negotiable.

Umm Hello, I would like to notify you that this person: :iconpipweedtheknight:
Has put your amazing art in a not so nice gallery folder of their favorites if you haven't noticed. I would recommend you block them. Also I am sorry that your wonderful art was put in this gallery!

:iconcoldcalzone:
ColdCalzone Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
haha yeah I would block them, but I think it is much more fitting that anyone visiting this page can come see the idiocy in both his comment, and the concept of a novelty account intending to berate and put down other people on DeviantArt. I reported him, and that's about it. anything beyond that is pretty much "feeding the troll"

Thanks anyways though, it's people like you that make DA a better place-

Although... humor me. About how much do you think it would cost to ship this to the Seattle area?
Reply
:iconcoldcalzone:
ColdCalzone Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Seattle would prooobably cost around 100-200 bucks.

Thanks for the fave and sub!

Pretty impressive. Did you sell the other one?
Reply
:iconcoldcalzone:
ColdCalzone Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah! The other one sold for 2,000 dolars and they paid shipping!

I was very happy with that sale, but I doubt this bed will get even close to that one!

Just because it's a simpler model that doesn't mean it won't get sold. Have faith. It's an original bed ;)

I like how this one is Queen Size. I'd seriously consider bidding on this if you weren't about as far away as possible (I live in Maine). </3 shipping charges.
