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?

You would necessarily have to give up the box spring. You could leave the middle beams out on the final layer...with two beams on the sides to keep everything in place. The more crafty person could cut two shorter beams and line the box spring on all sides.

I really like it. Cool way to do a platform. I would assume you could use a single layer if you wanted to make it lower to the ground.
