Before. Oh. So sad. We purchased a new bed but with everything on the frame, it was just much too tall and made the room look smaller. Poof, out with the frame.
But ever since then, I’ve been trying to figure out how to mask the ugly box spring.

I stumbled across an inspirational idea on the internet and finally!, finally I was off to the races. This project is so cheap and easy, and so effective, your mind will be blown.
All you need? Three pieces of 1×10 pine, some angle brackets, and the finishing method of your choice.

First, measure your box spring’s length and width. Cut your pieces of wood to the appropriate sizes. Don’t forget to subtract that 3/4″ of the 1x wood somewhere!
Next, time to make it pretty. Your imagination is your only limit — stain, paint, decorate, burn the wood, cover it in tiles….Seriously, the options are endless. I opted for fabric which I merely stapled on.

Next, assembly. Attach your corner brackets right up to the edge. I pilot drilled the holes first so the wood wouldn’t split and used strong fancy glue as I have a bulldozer of a crazy dog who plows into everything.
