So, Eric Strong did a few research on Ikea Hacks, which is altering or repurposing Ikea furniture from their intended function.
Stanford doctor and professor Eric Strong has a YouTube channel where he has posted over 100 thoughtful medical lectures on everything from heart murmurs to interpreting a chest X-Ray.
The space under the bed was converted into a secret clubhouse that opens by pulling down a book, which then opens the bookcase as a door, according to Strong.
Hacking IKEA flat packs to make impressive home furniture is nothing new with multiple sites dedicated to the cause, but this hack dreamt up by one dad determined to build the ultimate bed for his son deserves all the medals and awards going. What’s more, Strong’s video provides detailed, careful instructions that clearly came from a doctor’s mind.
The video was posted on YouTube more than a year ago, but it recently showed up on Reddit and took the Internet by storm.
He said the bed cost him about $850 to make when it was all said and done. He says he knows that’s pretty expensive, but not in compatison to custom-made beds like these ones.
Keeping budget in mind, Strong opted to transform an IKEA bed into something that would qualify as awesome. It’s also a book shelf, a storage system, and a source of entertainment that doesn’t involve video games or a touch screen.
