IKEA Hack FTW: Dad Builds the ‘Most Awesome Kids Bed’
Hands up if you have browsed Pinterest boards for hours, only to scoff at the sheer amount of work involved. They say that it’s best to start small and learn basic skills and improve upon them. Yet for some of us, following simple assembly instructions can be a huge headache. Have you heard of an IKEA hack? That’s what this amazing dad made for his son and created an amazing IKEA bed hack.

He put together the most epic big boy bed ever for his son, who was reluctant to give up his convertible toddler bed. Dr Eric Strong created his own IKEA hack (yes, that’s a thing). With some masterful furniture assembly, he incorporated tree different pieces of furniture into what’s every kid’s dream playhouse.
He started with the classic KURA loft bed and combined it with a TROFAST storage unit. The storage unit became the support for the slide (!) and the wall of a hidden clubhouse!
Finally, the small BESTA shelving unit is a secret book-pull activated secret entryway. He also installed some colour-changing lights for the ultimate sleepover party atmosphere. A mini ball run with a crane and pulley completes the IKEA hack.
But never mind the little ones. Any adult would be happy to trade in their grown up beds for one of these. Everyone in our office agreed, anyway! #PeanutButterandJealous
