Guest bed makes space for baby changing table





Materials: Hemnes daybed and Singlar changing table

Description: Convert a day bed to a comfortable toddler bed with changing table.

1. Cut the legs of the Sniglar changing table and paint the frame white.

2. Cut the excess length of the Hemnes daybed mattress and use this piece as a separator between the bed and the changing table.

3. If guests arrive, remove the Sniglar changing table and place the excess mattress back in place. It reverts back to being a full length day bed.

    That’s adorable and so useful! What a great way to save space and make the room functional for both the baby and guests.

    Just a reminder if you do something similar and have an infant, do not leave anything soft in the bed area with the infant, like the decorative pillows in the pictures, because they are a suffocation hazard! You should also make sure that the cut off portion of the mattress can’t fall over on your baby. Perhaps some strong velcro?

    I wanted to comment when I first read this, but it seems this site doesn’t allow iPhone users to comment.

    Anyway, this is so clever! A great idea… it makes me wonder why something similar isn’t offered by IKEA in the first place. A cot/changing table that can convert into a toddler bed/changing table, and then a full-sized bed seems like a brilliant piece of furniture to me!

    You’ve executed it really well, and it doesn’t look poorly made or dangerous, which most hacks for children on this site are!

    Neat idea.

    Cutting the mattress? does it still feel good though?

      It works fine with foam mattresses, but you can’t do it with all types of mattresses. You do need to keep your feet on the shortest side of the mattress, then it should be comfortable. You don’t want to have the cut where your shoulders are!

  8. what a great idea!!!!!

    SO cute and functional! After the baby goes down for a nap, I’d want to crawl into the small part and read a book for awhile! I also love the decor scheme – all those lovely stripes!

    This is perfect! I already have the daybed in what today is the spare bedroom and in the future will be the baby’s room. Thanks for sharing!
