Ikea Kura Bed....better as a Surf Shack
Materials: I kea Kura bed, vinyl lettering/design & Maxtrix Bed curatins
Description: So I love the Ikea Kura bed.....now! We were moving our 2 1/2 year old to a big boy bed & we wanted something fun & functional! Who doesn't? We didn't want to spend $1000 on a bed, so after seeing a few inspirational posts on here I got to work.
I contacted Good Golly Graphics on Etsy to come up with a custom design ($50) and measured the Maxtrix loft bed curtains and got those online from ekidsrooms.com ($99) and put that together with the Ikea Kura bed for ($200) and you've got yourself a fun little bed that any kid would love and we saved tons.
Our son transitioned well & loves his new bed. Ikea does advise that under 6 years old not sleep up top however we made the call to override that knowing our child & that it wouldn't be a problem. I think my research and creativity paid off & hope I can inspire others to save & think outside the "$1000 box" :-)
