Beds for the Guest Room

I've been transforming our finished rec-room in the basement into a guest room for family that will be staying here this summer. Here's an inexpensive idea I used for the beds.

I really dislike those standard metal bed frames with wheels. Instead, I picked up these chunky wood legs at Lowe's and simple screwed them into the wood of the box spring.
I screwed one leg into each corner and one in the center for extra support. I didn't have time to paint or stain them since guests were coming in a few days but I'll get to that soon.

To cover the box spring, I stapled a flat sheet (cut into strips) onto the wood frame for a more finished look.

Here's one more cheap trick...
I had three beds and three mismatched comforters. By covering all of them in matching duvet covers (I found mine at Ikea) everything looks coordinated!

  2. Does the bed have enough support from the new legs as compared to the standard metal box spring frame?

    1. I would imagine that a metal box spring frame has more support. I was going for something more attractive than metal frames.
