She then put plywood over the top for support, and added a double mattress on top.

On her @carlysadventures account, she wrote: “So we made the TikTok Ikea hack bed for the little man and it looks awesome.

“He loves the den underneath and he can store all his stuff.”

The mum showed how they had added a mattress and bedding in the space underneath the bed to make the “den” snug.

She added: “It’s simple really, get 3 [Kallax] units, build as instructed, screw together, put slats or plywood on top.”
