You're such a hack....part II

All right, this North-Easterly facing window has been giving me fits all morning. It's officially impossible to photograph this room. But, I said I would show you my "hack" project, and I will if you'll excuse the bad photography.
After searching literally EVERYWHERE for a cool twin bed with storage, I knew I was on my own. I bought an old captain's bed off Craigslist and took it apart (it was originally two stacked pieces with a total of six drawers). Then I ordered Danish-style tapered wooden legs from Ebay and attached them to the bottom of the frame. I primed and sprayed the whole thing with black semi gloss, and this was the end result: a modern-looking storage bed. We're pretty happy with the results, and the total cost of the project was about $50!


  1. You took it from crap to rad! I need a set of twins for a room and have been having issues finding something cool for cheap...Ikea is not near me so this is a great alternative plan. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks, Anonymous! Yep, it was definitely 10-year old said it looked like a "hillbilly bed". The project was so easy-if you need any help, feel free to let me know!

  3. Wow, love it! Especially like the black lacquer sleekness of it.


Do you have something to say? I'd love to hear it...
