Kura bed hack





Materials: Kura bed

Description:

I found inspiring images on your site as well as Ohdeedoh for this bed. I bought it from Craig’s list, painted it, added tiles from inhabitliving.com, a la another post and removed a few side panels. I am so pleased with the results, it’s not the Uffizi bunk bed of my dreams, but my two year old daughter loves her new big girl bed. The cost was $50 for the bed and around $150 for the paint and wall tiles. Her room is a work in progress but almost all Ikea.

    I love this! And I appreciate your design, especially considering that the Iffizi model is possibly one of the most ridiculously-priced items on record.

    Hello,

    The bed looks great. I have the same bed and the same wall tiles and have a number of questions.

    How did you apply the wall tiles? Also, did you cut the tiles so that they would fit the space in an upright position?

    I am also curious how you removed the side panels at the end of the bed? Any structural concerns with these changes?

    Finally, what type of paint did you use?

    Thanks for answering my numerous questions!

    I would like to use glow-in-the-darl paint for the Kura frame, but I am not sure how much paint I would need to use? Also I have the same questions as Tali, above! I am not crafty so this will be an adventure for me to create an space envy Kura bed

    hi, Im thinking of removing the panels from my kura bed too, but wondering if the panels are required for it to be structurally sound? Have you ahd any problems with the panels removed so far?
