Built-in bunk beds with clever built-in storage #Homes & Tours#bed nooks#beds#kids#storage Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Apr 30 2015) Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin Photos by Lala. Longtime readers may know about my mom — we call her Lala. She's taught you how to make hemp lamps, we've been inspired (and Empire workers have even enjoyed) her carbana, and we all toured her glittery Maui home. But Lala has another home, that she and my father share, in Texas. Unlike Maui, their Texas house was built with their grandkids in mind. The biggest grandkid draw (and, if I'm being honest, I love it too!) is their room with the built-in bunk beds with awesome storage surprises. As Lala explained… Each bed has its own light and shelves with their own outlets. Related Post Why we put our kids' bunk bed in the closet When we moved in to our home, our daughter's bedroom was a bit of a layout conundrum since we had to work around two closets,... Read more I didn't want a partition between the beds, I kept it open so the kids could all just hang out together. Instead we did the "crawl" space between the lower bunks and added shelves on the inside. Then we just put a platform between the beds on the top of the rails. Who else has some clever bunk bed ideas? From clever storage to closet usage… how do you rock your bunks? Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

As a kid, visiting my grandparents was always a special adventure, and they just had normal beds. This takes grandparenting to the next level . . . that pun was initially unintended. Reply I swear you must mind read. We recently bought an old house that needs a lot of work. I had been researching clever ways to fit my twins into a small room. Built in bunk beds with storage to the rescue! Reply Hi, I'm Alissa, I'm 34 years old – which I supposedly means "grown up" – and I STILL want bunkbeds in my life. These are just fantastic! Does Lala need any honorary grandkids? Reply No seriously, I play on these things EVERY TIME I'm at their house. 30 year old kids 4eva! Reply I particularly love that Lala knows one of the important things for us 30-something kids is a outlet by the bed for our phone chargers. 🙂 Reply Any chance of a tutorial on how they were built? Reply I'm 36 and infatuated with bunk beds. There are fabulous examples on Pinterest; I pinned some and here's my favorite: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/77616793548187214/ I really wanna have bunkbeds like Lala has! Whenever I imagine my dream house, the bunk beds look like that! Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
