I started this project because I was sleeping on a mattress that was on top of tubs.
I call it my 2x2 bed. I used 19 2"x2"x8' boards, and 4 1"x12"x8'. I wanted my bed to built up high so that when I got out of bed, I could just slide down to my feet. I built the bed 32" off the floor. I also wanted to build it longer than what my mattress was. My mattress is a full size mattress, and my feet hang off the end of it. So I built it 7' long. I took blankets and pillows and filled in the 1' extra space. It turned out better than I expected.
I started this project after work today at 11:30am. I just finished a few minutes ago, @ 7pm.
I am super happy with it. I have a ton of space under the bed for storage.
As you can see, it looks pretty good. I cannot wait to sleep tonight.
Have a great day all,
