The great FedEx bed frame experiment



The base, made of many large boxes.



The platform, made of many triangular tubes, stacked tightly into a flat surface.




The moneyshot.

not sure if that URL will work properly. ohmy.gif

This project is the culmination of everything I've ever believed in.

I moved into a new place and didn't want to haul a bunch of gay shit up the stairs. This was my solution. And it is awesome. I have to think about how to reinforce it if I ever bring a guy home, but this works for now. biggrin.gif FedEx will ship you free supplies, so I took advantage of that. I was inspired by some guy's fedex furniture site which has since been taken down. :'(

Now that I've made the bed, I kind of want to make a dresser, nightstand.. and other miscellaneous furniture I may need.

And it cost me ~$5 in packing tape. And several hours of my life.

whenever you have a guy over you might be better off just putting the mattress on the floor.

...are all of the boxes connected somehow or just stacked? looking at your last picture im really surprised that it stays up with that support in the middle.

EDIT; nevermind. the other supports were just hidden. i see what you did now that i look more closely at the top picture.

Aw, thanks. I don't think that's what my normal talking voice sounds like, but that's certainly how I sound when I'm smiling and full of excitement. :d

Alex - i seriously could not think while I was making the video because I was so ecstatic. i say 'collapses' like three or four times. I usually have weird word choices because I can't remember the normal synonym of that word. :(

mattress on the floor sounds reasonable. :( but it was kind of tricky getting it on in the first place. Had to prop it straight up against the wall with the window. then i jammed the bedframe next to it and pulled it awkwardly on top. Not sure how I'd get it back on if I were to remove it, hah. :d

I was honestly really surprised to see that it supported both you and your mattress.

This is what I do.

I actually like being closer to the floor anyway, I feel more comfortable.

Yeah I just have a futon on the floor with a knock off memory foam topper on it. It's the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. When I go to hotels and stuff I'm always afraid I'm going to fall off the bed because I move around in my sleep so much.

yeah mattresses on the floor makes being fucked up so much easier. FUCK bunk beds. school was awful and bunk beds made it worse.

i don't even know what i'm talking about, i have a mattress on a box spring on a bed frame. but girlfriend likes it. plus it makes it that little bit more discouraging for my dog so he doesn't sleep on my bed all day and shed like shit. instead he sleeps on the couch in my room. or the giant oversized comfy chair. or the floor. then if he's exhausted all those he goes in his crate under our table.

i need to talk a picture of our room to show how bad ass it is.

Bunk beds only suck as far as sleeping goes if you're on the top.

But being on the bottom bunk makes it really, really hard to sleep with girls, because there's just not enough room for one person to be on top of another.

I used to enjoy sleeping directly on the floor with no mattress at all. I got a new bed and mattress about a year ago and it's the most comfortable thing ever. Now I hate sleeping on the floor, unless I'm drunk, then I don't care where I'm sleeping.
