PLATFORM BED!


I am not a big bed frame/head board person, but my husband hates having our mattress and box spring on the floor! So, when he did not get rid of the wood from a crazy big odd shelving unit that he torn down in the garage of the house we bought. I told him since he did not get rid of the monsters, I had an idea of what to do with them. He nixed the idea for a year, and I finally did it...fortunately with his help! I was going for that mattress on a platform bed frame look (with all the bedding tucked in under the mattress all neat and tidy), but I forgot we had a box spring too! So although I like what I did...it is not the exact look what I was going for! o)
The 98% finished product! I like it...even if it is higher than planned!

    When you buy sheets buy a coordinated fitted sheet to go on the box spring. Or even a top sheet tucked in with nurse's corners. Trust me. I have used king top sheets under my mattress to cover my box spring like a bed skirt. A fitted sheet will,work great as a cover for your box spring.

    The bed in the photo??? I don't know. The post was about the bed I did make! Google diy platform beds, I guess.
