Upholstered Fjellse


Materials: Fjellse bed frame, Sultan Lade slatted bed base, plywood, pine beams, foam batting, fabric, staples & screws

After seeing an similar hack on Ikea Hackers, I took the cheap Fjellse bed frame, heightened the headboard with a sheet of plywood, and upholstered it all with foam batting and fabric.

    Exactly what I have been looking for! Ikeas website says this is a full size bed but will it fit a standard queen mattress? And can I use this bed without the slats?
