Eric Strong’s son wanted “the most awesome bed ever,” and with some Ikea furniture a little DIY handiwork, Dad really delivered.
Strong used a Kura loft bed, Besta shelves and Trofast storage boxes to build a bed with a slide, a ball run and even a secret door leading to a secret hiding place. The whole thing cost about $850 to build.
Turns out there’s an entire community of people who build cool structures out of Ikea furniture - check out IkeaHackers.net for more ideas. It’s like Lego for adults.
