IKEA Kura Loft Bed Hack

Time for another Gramzee IKEA hack. My grandson just got an IKEA Kura loft bed for his room. He needed more playspace and the lofted bed provides that but it also creates the opportunity for a neat hiding spot. There have been lots of different posts on how people have enclosed the space but I made an important discovery for this treatment.......

I used a standard fabric shower curtain 60" x 72" for the fabric. It was just about the perfect amount of fabric. Amazon has so many neat shower curtains and this space themed one was perfect for a seven year old boy.  And it cost only $20!
  • I cut the shower curtain in half horizontally and sewed velcro to the top of each half. 
  • I attached the other half of the velcro to the bottom edge of the bed. I used double stick carpet tape and then a staple gun to attach this.
  • The top half of the shower curtain fits across the large opening in the front.
  • The bottom half fits along the base and wraps around behind the ladder.
  • I then pinned up the bottoms and hemmed them to fit. 
  • I also created a slit door in the middle of the front but I don't think that was necessary.
Quick, simple and perfect for Taylor!

  1. What a great idea! My granddaughter is grown so maybe I'll make one for myself. :) BTW, love the wooden shelves also. Where did they come from?

    1. Those are also IKEA classics- great for kid's rooms are very functional and flexible.
