Mom Hacks IKEA Beds, Creating A Superbed That Fits All 7 Family Members
Elizabeth Boyce needed a creative bedtime solution for her five children and disabled husband. Tired of everyone not getting enough sleep, and used to co-sleeping from family trips, Boyce decided to create a “Family Bed” from parts available at IKEA. While not everyone online approved, the family is happy with the arrangement, and has even put together a FAQ for the curious.
“We had the loft beds already, but they weren’t being used since the kids were sleeping on our floor,” Boyce told Aplus. “So we tried fitting them all in the same room and making it look like one bed. Tom is disabled and in and out of the hospital, my work schedule can be erratic, and our kids just sleep better when they are all in the same space.”
