Kura & Maskros Hacks are the highlight of the new room for our 4 girls!

Materials: Kura Beds & Maskros Light

Description: When we were looking for ideas for our girls’ new room I was inspired by another hack I saw on Ikea Hackers for the Kura beds.

We started with two Kura beds (both found on Craigslist!), painted them black while they were unassembled and built the platforms and drawers out of painted plywood.

The drawers are on wheels and go all the way to the back of the bed so they provide a LOT of storage! The curtains for the bottom bunks are just held on with tension rods.

I spray painted the “flowers” on the Maskros light before assembling it.

The pictures on the top of the walls are the IKEA $2.99 framed mirrors. We put black and white pictures on top of the mirrors to make them look like framed prints.
