Like I said to ‘P, after forking over an extravagant sum as rent in Lagos, there’s almost nothing left for a proper bed frame (which also costs tons these days). Or sometimes, the room’s so tiny, it feels like a bed frame takes over the entire space. Having the mattress on the bedroom floor seems like the easiest option. But if you’re like me and want a frame of some sort, there are options available. A crate/pallet bed is one of such options. It’s cheaper than most of the bed frames you’ll find and your local carpenter can help you put one together.
I loved the idea as soon as ‘P suggested it and immediately took to Pinterest (as always) to find ways to spruce it up. And because I’m nice, I’ll share some of these ideas with you. You’re welcome.
