Ikea hack - kura and trofast hack finished!

Introducing...Griffin's new room!

As small as his room is, this is the best view of the new bed area that I could get.

These hanging organizer pockets (kusiner wall pockets from ikea) were put near his bed for night time necessities - toys, entertainment, flashlight, etc. We figured this was safer than a shelf.

Although these shelves were installed awhile ago, they've been repurposed with things special to Griffin, including his birthday ring.

This one has also been repurposed with other memorable items, including the frog I painted for him while pregnant.

The krokig hooks from ikea turned this small nook into a pretend/dress up area.

The trofast storage unit doubles as a second way up and a place for us to sit and read to G. Oh yeah, and there's tons of storage!

Here's the reading hideout. The fabric is from ikea as are the pillows and curtain line. We've ordered a roll up Japanese mattress for guests (and mommies who want to snuggle while reading and still be able to move her back afterwards).

Here's an inside view of the secret hideout. The trofast drawers have tons of storage space that are yet to be filled. The lights are LED stars from ikea, strung in and out of the upper bunk slats. The lights are called "kilometer" but not on the website for some reason.

The space under the window was turned into extra storage, too. Right now it doubles as an airplane hanger apparently.

More about the transformation here and here.

  2. Hello
    I was wondering if I could do this in my daughter's room. I bought a kura bed and I would like to buy the trofast storage and use it as stairs, but the room is small ans the storages can't be opened "outside" the bed but only "inside", I mean under the bed. I was afraid it wouldn't be possible to open inside, but your pictures prove me it is ! Thanks a lot.
