Materials: LEIRVIK Bed

The LEIRVIK Bed comes with a beautiful but quite feminine top part. As gorgeous as it is, some times you might get tired of it, especially since the bed itself is nearly indestructible and tend to stick around for quite some time.

To make the design a fair bit more clean and straight and totally manly, just 3D print 2 of the adapters found here, remove the top part of the bed, screw the adapters into these onion-shape-top-decoration thingies, and push them into the tubes that held the top parts.

    Any idea how I get some replacement screws for this bed? Thing rattles all night long.

    Has anyone box springs keep falling down? About over this damn bed! Had it for almost a year and now hardly move and box springs fall off little lip. Help!

      Hey. If your box spring keeps falling through, you can purchase slats over at ikea.

      I didn’t want to risk it. I went to Lowe’s and bought four pieces of lumber….. 2x4x10 and had the Lowes cut-guys cut each set in half to match the 60 inch width of the bed (ended up with 8 pieces). It ran me about $37 after tax…. but the sturdiness of the bed is WELL worth the investment. I still kept the steel beam in for extra support but the 8 lumber pieces worked PERFECTLY and they fit easily into my sedan for transport.

      Tried to respond earlier but it didn’t seem to go through. I bought four 2x4x10 pieces of lumber from Lowes and had them cut in half to create eight 2x4x5 pieces. VERY STURDY….and popped right in over the frame sides and the steel beam…. they also fit into my Nissan Altima with no problem! $37 after tax…. which is a better price than the Ikea slats and A LOT more durable.

    You don’t need a 3d printer to do this. I did it, just went to hardware store bought a big fat dowel, cut to size, quick spray paint, little putty and voila!

      But the 3d-printing-part is required to make it more “manly”, I suppose. I don’t see much difference between original and removed top head part though.
