​Dad Builds Son An Incredible LEGO Bedroom

​Dad Builds Son An Incredible LEGO Bedroom

A dad has built his son a LEGO bedroom made with colourful 'bricks' and it is so amazing.

The super dad, Adam Hood, spent six months creating the incredible room that will likely be the envy of thousands of other kids across the country - all those other less-handy-with-tools mums and dads will be cursing him!

The colourful transformation was however a labour of love for factory worker Adam who had always dreamed of becoming a carpenter but had no prior building experience.

With a lot of patience using the trial and error method, he managed to build son, Michael, four, a bunk bed that appears to be entirely made of giant colourful bricks.

Adam, 36, has been a lifelong LEGO fan, so used his passion to help him build the bed in the family's three-bed terrace in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

The dad of two found himself with some spare time on his hands back in May when he changed jobs from cobbler to factory worker, so began the project. He then was given blocks of time off between long shift stints.

He set about making the Lego-shaped bunkbed frame from a single huge sheet of MDF before meticulously gluing on 200 wooden dots to give the 'bricks' their familiar appearance.

Adam then covered the whole structure in layers of perfectly-applied brightly coloured paint to give the illusion the bed is formed out of giant Lego bricks.

Naturally, it's not actually made of lego or it wouldn't be very sturdy,

He also scoured car boot sales for packs of lego, topping up the family's collection so that he could surprise his son with a gigantic new lego set too.

"Together, our collection has grown tremendously over the last few years - we must have 100,000 bricks now," Adam said.

After keeping Michael out of the room for eight weeks, he then surprised him with a big reveal, catching his adorable reaction on video - as well as the hilarious strop thrown by daughter Roseanne, eight, who is now demanding her own 'animal disco'-themed space.

"When Michael saw the room for the first time, he was totally gobsmacked - more than anything because I'd been collecting Lego for six months that he knew nothing about."

And whilst he was pleased, Roseanne felt hard done by.

"Roseanne is extremely jealous and has already asked for her room to be decorated in an 'animal disco' theme."

He spent £1,500 on the transformation in total and estimates if he had been working on the project for eight hours every day, it would still have taken him three months to finish.

And while wife Samantha, 31, a nurse, was exasperated at the length of time the project took, Adam said she was proud of him for seeing it to completion.

Adam said: "When we moved in ten years ago we decorated to make it ours, but we'd had kids since and it was time to make it a space for them too."

He added: "I have always been a massive fan of Lego from when I was a kid. The thing I love so much about it is you can do anything you like - the only limit is your imagination.

"I wanted to show the kids if they try hard enough they can do anything they want to - nothing is impossible."

Looks like Adam's got his work cut out though, better hop to that animal disco room now pronto.
