Hello all. I loved the idea of raising up the MALM Storage Bed so much, I have purchased one. My problem is that I am not handy. I need help with this project.

I live in the Washington, DC area and don’t know what to do first, so I am asking for help here. Should I post an ad for help on my local craigslist too? I see many people advertise on Craigslist as IKEA furniture assembly experts. Would they be the right fit for this project?

Thanks in advance!
