They (whoever they are) say that necessity is the mother of invention, and nowhere is this more evident than in children's bedrooms. As parents, we're willing to do pretty much anything (and we do mean anything) to ensure that our little ones catch their ten to twelve hours of Zs every night. This is why some of our favorite posts from 2008 are about the ingenious solutions people have come up with for nurseries and bedrooms: from repurposing those dastardly crib bumpers to Ikea hacking a somewhat tacky loft bed. From custom building a crib for a tiny space to designing super-deluxe loft rooms that would be the envy of any kid. These and much more below the jump.
