Molger Leg Frame to Bed Frame

IKEA Molger bed frame

Materials: Molger leg frames, cooling racks

Description: This bed frame was made from discontinued Molger leg frame sets for bathroom sinks. They were on sale at $20 from $50 in the as is section. It took 10 boxes, all of their inventory, to build this frame. Also, for the supporting slats underneath, I used metal cooling racks that were also in the as is at 1.50 a piece. It took 20 racks.

    bed frame, no so much.

    but hey, your project just set mine up, thank you for saving me the trouble of trying to make a bed. I can find MALM’s on craigslist all day.

    Take that, mandal.

    i like the chunkiness of the legs. however- this is nearly impossible for most people to do if just browsing. but nice job, i like it.

    The chunky, clumsy scale of the legs takes away from the otherwise mod and chic headboard. Very expensive repurposing! But kudos for all that focused work.

      Agreed. The legs are clumsy. It doesn’t have the permeability that exists with the rest of it. It can be easily fixed but I’m done with it.

      Clumsy? They are perfectly executed. Chunky maybe, but clumsy? You’re just being a dick.

    Love the jenga like blocks! Do you have a blog post or some sort with more photos and production process? Thanks!

    • Kdinh says:

      Thanks! Jenga blocks, that’s a good one. I did not take production photos. Though I advise that you not try it your self. It took almost a week and over 300 screws! I also had to drill pilot holes for every single one bc the wood cracks otherwise!

    You give no details.

      Well, I simply screwed them together individually from the bottom up. I regret not adhering the legs to the same design. It was done before the head board so it wasn’t as obvious.

  13. I’m sure you can go to home depot and pick up wood for less than that.
