The Coolest Built-In Bunk Beds (and DIY Brass Hardware)

Christina is one of my favorite people. She is as kind, talented and gorgeous as the day is long. The last time I was in Arizona, I swung by her new house for a little tour. I'm going to beg her to let me share everything here on LGN when she's finished (I'll probably have to arm wrestle the editors at Elle Decor for it - it's SO good!).

In case you haven't seen these yet, and since we were talking about cool bunk beds the other day, I thought I'd share the built-in bunks Christina did in her triplet sons' room. So, so cool right? That railing is unreal.

One of my favorite parts of the bed is the DIY hardware Christina made by spray painting pipes! I've made curtain rods out of pipes before, but never oversize pulls. The brass spray paint takes them to a whole new level.

I love how chunky these are. Anything smaller would have been lost on the beds.

See what I mean by talented?! 

PS Christina shared a little tour of her twin daughters' bedroom here, back in the day. Still love that room. :)

I love this!!!! Her whole house is insane. I've loved watching the entire progression. But....am I reading this right? Twin girls AND triplet boys?!? I'm tired just typing that.

Wow, these are gorgeous. What a fun space for her kids!

Michelle Panting said...

These are amazing! Those little steps totally slay me with their cuteness. Makes me wish I could be a kid in that house.

She def has style in spades. I can't imagine having that many kiddos, and pulling myself together each day, much less with as much panache as she does - effortlessly.
Totally inspired!

I want to move in! Those are way better than the bunk beds we had as kids.

Jenna @ O Hi, O Love said...

Those are so awesome, they are making me want bunk beds! And what a great idea for the hardware! I don't know how I would have time for anything close to this if I had twins and triplets!

Christina and I think alike! I used the same plumbing parts as brackets for my DIY Acrylic/Lucite rods! That metallic spray paint works wonders on metal! Shiny brass-looking perfection! You can see the entire process here.

I'm exhausted just thinking about twins and triplets, and these bunk beds are beyond...fun AND kid-appropriate AND elegant - amazing!

Talk about SuperMom! I don't doubt she has her rough days just like everyone else, but twins, triplets, AND handy with power tools? I want to be her best friend :)

I love Kristina w/Full House. She's such a style maven. I have been dying to see more photos of her house. Please do post!! Even if ED does feature her home, I'd rather see a more personal account of it from you!

Wow!! That looks like so much fun. So pretty too.

Donna said...

What a great idea for pulls! Even without the brass they are cool. Might be cute for a small towel rack also. I also kind of did a double take (or double screen scroll as the case may be) about I twins and triplets. I'm wishing her much energy :-)

julia said...

Oh my goodness that's looking amazing!!! I have a thing for built-ins so this already has my heart!

Jennifer Flores said...

Christina is amazingly talented. I've been stalking her instagram for more pics of her new home but if you could arm wrestle her for more photos that would be even better ;)

Kirsten @ Triple Max Tons said...

Wow, these turned out awesome!

Full House said...

More like you're going to have to arm wrestle the peeps at Highlights mag. You were way to generous with your words. Promise me another date sometime soon;)

Full House said...

Oh wait did I say highlights I meant sports illustrated swim suit addition. I just read you get in shape post;)

Shavonda said...

Love love love that hardware! They look amazing on the beds:)

Kathryn said...

Wow, I love the steps up rather than having a ladder! It seems so very polished, and the cut outs on the railing are a detail so many people would not consider this much but make all the difference.
