Cutting and Folding a Box Spring
thanks, I had been thinking if the best way to do this and your instructions helped convince the girlfriend it was a good idea. Also saved me a wad of cash.
Thanks so much for this. Followed the instructions, am typing this on the bed in the upstairs bedroom where it belongs. Now how long until I get over the fear the boxspring will just split at any moment?
Great idea! Saved my son and his new bride a few hundred dollars. One suggestion from my wife: instead of cutting the fabric on the bottom remove it from one end back to just past the middle, then reattach it intact. We've found that cats love to crawl up inside the bed if there is any opening. Even if it is a small one they will make it big enough to crawl through.
Great tutorial. Super helpful. Never would have expected the wires in the box to bend to that degree. Advice if you're thinking about this: get the right tools and this is way better, easier and cheaper than buying a split box spring. Pre drill the holes! May want to buy a 6" clamp, too.
