Handcraft Your Own Mattress Box Spring

What happens when you can't move a queen box spring up a set of steps? You can make your own! It was actually my first post on a new blog called: 9 E Main Street. We purchased a historic home, Circa 1790, and right off the bat- the tight front staircase was too small to hoist the box spring up... We came up with the perfect solution- AND for under 50 dollars! To read the "how" we did it, visit my blog!

    This is such a common problem in the town where we live that our local furniture store stocks two piece springs at all times. We found that out when we moved here. Our stairs turn such a tight corner that we could not get our lovely and nearly new pillow top mattress up the stairs so we ended up buying a new mattress and investing in a pricey topper. Comfy, but not a welcomed expense at the time.

    Hi Lori! Ha! I learned about those 2 piece box springs after we constructed the box spring, but still checked them out. They were a bit pricey, but a great solution to a problem of "tight squeeze" in older homes. Thank you for your response!
