Well, it's been a very long time coming but over the weekend I managed to put Bella's Arcade in her room in the exact spot I originally envisioned it when I started. I had my dad's help lifting it up the stairs and I think I destroyed my back but it was worth it.

My daughter LOVES it and she is so excited to have an arcade machine of her own in her room - her reaction was thanks enough.

Here are a few more pics with the machine on. I have no idea how to take a picture without the flash that doesn't make the marquee look all washed out. I assure you it is beautiful - especially in a dark room!

It fits the space perfectly and looks like a little toy. It is small (80% of original Ms. Pac-man size - about 50" tall) but it is perfect for an adult to sit in a chair and play. Bella still needs a step stool to reach the controls and see the screen!

A HUGE thanks to everyone over at BYOAC who provided me with all the great advice as I went along. I could not have done this by myself.
