The Sea Chest Bed – A project for Animal Planet’s show “Tanked.”

Sea Chest Bed for "Tanked" Episode 5 Good KarmaArtists are driven by a desire to be unique; to create and bring to life a reflection of their individuality. Commissioned artists derive their inspiration from a set of requirements defined by the client. Artisans received a call from Nancy Glass Productions regarding a commission for a reality TV show based on fish tanks; specifically a project based on the children’s story “The Maggie B.”

Our first thoughts were, “Ok you want a stand for a fish tank right?” Well, no … Lindsay Bonsall, one of the show’s producers explained that a child would be laying in a bed positioned under a fish tank anchored about five feet off the floor and configured to look like the side of a boat. She then added that this fish tank manifestation of the THE MAGGIE B. boasts a magical portal; this is an acrylic bottom boat!

It took a little imagination to visualize exactly what Lindsay was describing, but we caught on. Design a child’s bed that provides comfort, storage, function, and package it with a nautical theme. We decided to go with a sea chest, one that converts into a bunk to enjoy and fantasize about adventures at sea. We’re going to leave out the details of the recipient of this amazing creation; you’ll have to watch the show for the rest of that story.Sea Chest Bed for "Tanked" Episode 5 Good Karma Portal View

So, our solid cherry “Sea Chest Bed” houses four drawers, a mattress, storage space for planks to convert to a table, and a custom ladder for easy access to the bunk. The piece rests on four locking casters to allow easy positioning.

We passed the fabric material to Richard and Randy Brown of Brown’s Upholstery to create a custom made mattress and bedding.
