Cheap way to get bed off floor

by Dae
Our Ikea bed frame broke after 6 or 7 years. Money is really tight. Is there a cheap way we can get mattress and box bring off floor and when I say cheap I mean basically almost free -lol. Thank you!

    My first thought is to go on Craig's List and watch the FREE listing you will be amazed at the bed frames, wood, cement blocks, etc. I think you will something that will work for you project...look forward to pics if you find something really cool...

    Yes, what the other two said. If nothing else, go to HD and buy their 1 x 4 x 12's and use those for a support. I think they are around $3.40 ish now. I use those for about EVERYTHING. I made my headboard with them and it is great (if I do say so myself).

    Wouldn't work for me (bad back and all that), but just stack the mattress and box spring. If they happen to be the super thick ones then your bed wouldn't be too low down and you'll have a modern, minimalist look.

    I used concrete blocks in each corner and a couple in the middle once. Good Luck.

    Search free items on local Craigslist site. There are always free & sometimes really nice bed frames on there. Good luck😊
