Hackers Help: Loft to platform bed??

Hi all.

I am new to website, so looking for experts who may be able to help me.

My daughter had a twin loft bed which she no longer wants as a loft. So, it’s just the twin bed sitting on the floor now… no legs as it used to sit on top of a desk and shelving unit.  I am seeing posts on creating a platform for the bed using Ikea Kallax shelving units. Would love to be able to do this to give her more storage in her room and get the bed off the floor, but not sure at all how to do it. Can anyone share a post or anything explaining how to do this so the bed is well supported and won’t shift around on top of the shelving units? Any advice would be much appreciated on how to do this well and to insure this well made bed can be supported would be appreciated.



Hi Kalaws

You can definitely hack a bed from the KALLAX.

Here are a few posts which may be of help:
