This was a small project during the summer of 2015. I had my bed (a futon mattress) directly on the floor for a few years and I thought it about time I had a frame. I had two power tools, an old used table saw, and an even older used portable drill, but I made it work. The frame is the perfect height for me, easy to get into bed and great space under it for storage. I believe the total cost of the wood and screws was just under $70, perfect for my low budget.
