geeky dad, funky kids’ room

my dad’s pretty handy and if ikea was around when i was a kid, i think i would have thrown a major tantrum till i had this kids’ room. cue all daddies out there, steal this idea from geekdad and your kid will love you for it.


geekdad jim hacked the tromso loft bed into top-bunks. built a wooden structure to elevate the beds 5 feet off the ground, clearing space underneath for closet, desk and – get this – a fireman pole! the repressed child in me is green with envy.

take your kids to smaland and have a kit kat break! :)

[thanks! anna]

    Yes, I agree about the sheets. :)

    But very cool indeed. I do wish we could see more pics of how it all goes together. We only see a few pics just showing part of the room.

    Looks awesome! But as a mom, I can’t even imagine changing the sheets on that bed! ;)
