It is possible! Removing a few pieces here and placing them there, this mom has been transforming the Ikea Kura bunk bed into an authentic little playhouse. The height of the ceiling increased thanks to the roof added to the house, and this way her older daughter could play comfortably.

If you are not so handy to design the awesome decorations that others do, you can also create a neat corner for your kids, using other Ikea’s furniture. In this occasion, they have painted the room in very vivacious tones, to give a joy touch to it. But we would have taken more advantage of the area under the Kura bunk bed because it looks a little empty. But the idea turns out to be simple and very functional.

We love this room as a whole! Although it may have something to do with this adorable lamb rocker that seems to be really soft. But everything there is in the room has a hospitable sensation and a feminine and delicate style. The panels of the Ikea Kura bunk bed were simply customized with a few prints, which are cheap and easy to stick. The same prints were used for the walls, to create continuity, and the room was decorated with some honeycomb ball paper lanterns that bring a party touch. Under the bed, you have a rest area, which can be used to read, or for another child to sleep. Simple but effective, so much that I would not hesitate to copy it, lamb included.
