My daughter wants to put her mattress and boxspring on the floor in her room. I would like to build a wood frame low to the floor to set it on. If anyone knows how to make a bed frame the advice would be appreciated. It is a full size bed.

Thank you

I just made a frame for my granddaughter’s full sized bed. I went and purchased 2 boards 10" wide by the length of the bed, and 2 boards 10" wide by the width of the bed. I crisscrossed the corners of a short board and a long board by drilling a hole first about 8 inches from the end of the board and approx. 5 inches in, across the 10" part of the board. Then I took a jig saw and cut from the hole I drilled to the edge of the board. I did the same on the other board. These were actually just less than 5 inches, and then I just crisscrossed the boards. I did the same on each corner so to make a frame that goes under the bed. Kind of looks like a tic tac toe board under the bed. Then just set the matrices on the frame. Hope you can understand this and hope it helps.

We hacked a Japanese style platform bed which sits on my daughter's floor. We got the idea from the Lack tables at IKEA. We just secured a bunch of them together for it.
