Cool Idea: A Bed of Beams

Touring Austin's Bouldin Castle, a former Mission-style- turned-fairytale home, I noticed a set of platform beds made from stacked wooden beams and felt a serious pang of envy. The beds have an awesome organic modern quality to them that's just downright cool. I wouldn't be surprised if the beams were salvaged, too; they do look a bit worn. The good thing is that if you have the initiative to make your own, it's an easy DIY waiting to happen. You'll need to drill together about 33 standard beams to support a full or queen size mattress, but really the concept can be customized for any bed size you need. The only trouble is that you have to be willing to give up your box spring! What do you think? Do you love 'em like me?
