THE ADORABLE STORY of how one daughter’s bedroom has been transformed by her dad is taking the internet by storm today.

She really wanted a fairytale-style tree in her room - and dad delivered.

“My daughter wanted a fairy tree in her room that she could sit inside and read books, climb the branches, and also have a top sitting area.”

The dad shared the project to Imgur last night, and it’s already been viewed over a million times.

The place looks beyond class.

It took him 18 months of work, but he delivered the goods
