Ball Pit Bunk
A bubble-gum pink paint job and some MDF paneling give this KURA ball-pit bunk bed a modern edge. The bottom bunk holds a thin mattress, offering protection during rowdy ball play and doubling as a guest bed when the balls are removed. Genius!

Shabby Shack Tree House
This imaginative playhouse is every kid's dream!
The parents behind this amazing design hack used a pair of KURA bed frames to create a single corner unit. A simple, wooden house frame, connected to each of the existing beds, supports the individual panels that make up the walls and roof of the structure. Other details include a connecting tunnel and a bedtime view of the rising moon. Too cute!
