Description: My son was sometimes keeping books on his KURA high sleeper, but as he is a big boy now, he also needs his space in the bed.
I also had this RIBBA laying around and decided to add them together.
RESULT: The RIBBA (mounted sideways) provides an excellent bookshelf! Books/Comics slide in and out easily.
A very simple IKEA hack, required: 1) KURA bed 2) RIBBA 3) three decent screws
Just mount the RIBBA to the KURA as shown in pictures. I used a longer (190cm) RIBBA than is current sold in the (Dutch) IKEA, but a 115cm also works. I shortened the RIBBA to make it fit exactly and put three screws in the existing holes of the RIBBA and… DONE!
