DELSEV bed: Raising the Stakes


Materials: IKEA DELSEV

So I had an IKEA DELSEV single bed frame which i bought off someone who didn’t need it anymore. Great sturdy bed for $25, but I wanted more space in my rented room, so I decided to go loft. I did some research for ideas to convert my current bed, and found the perfect one at I made modifications to her plans so that I would be able to walk underneath without having to slouch. The hack only cost me $38 worth of timber, and this was the result after 3 days of cutting, sanding, partial assembly, staining and varnishing, and final assembly:

      Nope, only a skylight, cuz my room is right smack in the middle of a townhouse! Skylight’s better than nothing tho, I’ve lived in a room where there were no windows at all! Got kinda depressing after a while, like living in a pimped up prison cell
