Kids Loft KURA bed with NORDLI stairs

IKEA items used: 2 Kura beds + 2 Nordli units

The Nordli units used as storage inside the stairs.
The upper Kura is assembled now for my elder son. The mattress base is assembled on the lowest line of the upper bed (by design it should be on the second line).
The lower Kura is used as loft meanwhile, but can be converted to be the second bed for my younger son.

  • Steel S hooks 5cm x4
  • Nordli drawers unit (without top and bottom plates) x2
  • Pine wood plates 2cm thickness:
    • 124×40 x2
    • 97×40 x1
    • 70×40 x1
    • 43×40 x1
    • 22.5×40 x4
