    $15 Bed Frame

    Where depends on what country you're in. I know in the USA, stores like Home Depot, Lowes, and Ace Hardware carry framing lumber (aka 2x4s). The measurements are based on your mattress and boxspring. Measure your mattress length, width and height and determine how high you'd like the top of the mattress to be off the ground. This determines your legs' height as so: Preferred bed height (say 25 inches) - mattress height and boxspring height (say 13" + 11" or possibly no box spring, in which case it would be just 13" mattress).So:25" - (11"+7") = 7" high legsor 25" - 11" = 14" high legs (this would be a platform bed)The other measurements should be simple to take based on the instructions stormthirst mentioned!

Also, if you don't have a box spring you'll need some bracing across the frame, such as some 1x4 slats going across the inner rails.

    GroundFX Bed

    Hey, great Instructable! Very well documented and explained for beginners.One small suggestion is for your screw placement - When placing screws aligned with the grain (as in your vertical supports for the headboard) you should stagger them when possible so they're not putting pressure on the same grain line. This reduces the likelihood of causing a split in the wood.Love the project!
