Dad builds awesome ikea hack

Every little kid dreams of having a secret room in their house, and thanks to this awesome dad, one boy’s dreams have come true. Creative California dad Eric Strong started with three pieces of IKEA furniture and hacked his way to an amazing bunk bed complete with a ball ramp, pulley system, and hidden room with colored lights.

We love the ball ramp, which fits golf balls and is sure to provide hours of entertainment. It tips when six balls have been loaded, then dumps into a bucket that can be raised with a pulley.


There’s also an amazing secret room that can be opened by lifting up on a book. See the full video below:

Have you “hacked” anything for your kids? We’d love to see! Share with us on social media, #redtricycle.
