Bunk Bed to Loft Bed

Bunk bed to loft bed

Materials: Tromso Loft Bed, Hacksaw

Description: The Tromso Loft bed was too tall for the kids room and I always loved the idea of have a loft bed over another bed in an L shape and then adding a dresser underneath, kind of like the bed from Room & Board that cost $1400.

I decided to literally “Hack” the bed in half.
