Playful bed for kids with built-in slide

If we were to make a list of things that kids really like the slide would definitely have to be in it. In fact, adults like slides too but usually they get too big to sue them. Today we’re going to show you one of the most fun kid’s beds you can find. Actually, you would have to build this bed yourself because you won’t find it in stores. But we’ll show you how.

This is the Ikea Kura bed or at least it was until it got transformed into something a little more fun. First, the bed itself got some improvements. For example, the panels were painted with chalkboard paint and the wood frame with semi-gloss white paint. It’s a simple and creative way of spicing up the décor and making it more suitable for children. The bed was then placed on a plywood platform that sits on three Ikea Trofast frames. There’s also additional support provided by 2×6 wood screwed into the wall studs.

The slide is not something you can buy. You need to build it yourself. You could use a slide from another structure is you have one you don’t use anymore but this situation is rare. To build the slide you can use 2 sanded 2x4s, an 18 inch wide scrap of plywood left over and an 18 inch wide piece from a dry erase board. At least these are the materials sued for this particular project. You can always improvise as long as you know what you’re doing. There’s also a platform at the top of the slide. It’s a very fun project that will surely make your kid very happy.{found on buildsewreap}.
