    Has anyone tried this yet? Which Ikea shelf to purchase and what type of bed size to fit the setup?

    im just curious how much weight it can hold up- Esp if a queen mattress is used and two people are sleeping on in

    Could you use a queen sized mattress in a similar way with this DIY?

    Nice idea, but don’t forget to drill holes in the plywood or you will have condensation between the mattress and the plywood and mold will grow…

    This is a perfect and inexpensive way to store seasonal items, like sweaters that aren’t used in the crazy NYC summer months!
