Storage bed help
I recently got the brimnes bed from ikea, however once I put my pillow top mattress on it with the box spring, the headboard is hidden and it is too high to climb into. The frame has a metal support running through the center and four metal supports in each corner.
Can I rest my mattress on these metal supports with no box spring or slats?
Should i go get some plywood from home depot and cut it down to size, or make my own 2x4 slats?
I think the mattress has springs and supports in it and is self sufficient as a one piece without a box spring, but how can I check?
I don't have the room to take the bed apart until I figure this out, and I don't have the money to get the slats or board yet, but i need to sleep and cant get up there! I'm concerned the mattress might be too heavy for the frame with me and the boxspring.. even if i could get up there..?
