Sometimes the simplest hacks can have the greatest results.
Take this re-do of the IKEA Kura bed. Luke disliked the blue panels at the end, so he applied a little ingenuity to bring a fun trend into his daughter's room.
See the "after" photo below the jump.
He simply flipped the panels over so the back side was facing out, and used some aerosol chalkboard paint to create a blackboard. We could also see taking this idea in a slightly different direction by using fabric or wallpaper instead of paint. Either way, we're kind of wishing the Kura was available in queen size.
