I was wondering if anyone had experience in building a bed frame?? The one I have is falling apart due to it being ancient and was hoping for some fun, inventive ideas  Smiley

Much appreciated!

ooh .. I might not have an anser, but I would also be in the same boat of looking for a nifty way to make a bed frame.  right now my mattress is on the floor (and has been for a lot of years becuase I want something special and "me").

I have no experience with this either, but if I were looking to make one I'd start at Instructables (http://www.instructables.com).  There seem to be quite a few different ones for bed frames there (http://www.instructables.com/tag/?q=bed+frame&limit%3Atype%3Aid=on&type%3Aid=on&type%3Auser=on&type%3Acomment=on&type%3Agroup=on&type%3AforumTopic=on&sort=none)   Hopefully you'll find some ideas on where to start.

Instructables is a great site. It might be cheaper to shop at IKEA or the thrift shop.
but lotsa questions...
Do you want wood or metal pipe?
Do you want a platform bed? w/ drawers underneath?
Do you want a four poster bed?

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, and you're right Instructables is a great place to start!
