From Kura Loft Bed to Playhouse

Reader Project

Ikea's Kura loft bed lends itself to creative hacking (see previously featured transformations here, here and here). This wonderful project sent in by Ohdeedoh reader Anna is no exception.

Anna, who keeps a craft blog called My Rolodex, wrote us the nicest note when she sent in a photo of her daughter's bed:

Hello! Since I have so often been the one being inspired, I hope to help someone else out there looking for ideas. I created a felt playhouse for my daughter's Ikea Kura bed as it is currently being used for toy storage. She shares a room with our baby, so it was great to have a bed that let us keep her toys in her room, and still have room for the baby's crib. I measured out the felt to fit the bed, and attached it with strips of velcro.

We love this idea, especially its open-endedness. We can picture a Kura bed transformed into a castle, a firehouse, a space station – any kind of structure, really. Thanks so much for the inspiration, Anna!
