Good Questions: Ideas for King size platform?

Neal asks:

"I'm in trouble. I have a cal king mattress being delivered to me on Sunday, but the platform bed I was going to get from West Elm is sold out throughout California. I don't like any of the Ikea options. Do you have any last minute recommendations for me?

Hi Neal, sorry we couldn't get this up in time before Sunday, but it still is a good question worth posting. One idea would be to try building one, perhaps using some large closet doors. In a recent house tour, AT reader Lori2 made a platform bed using closet doors and MDF. Here is a link to the post, and she discusses how she made it in the comments. We've heard that Plummers and EQ3 may also have more contemporary possibilites?

Does anyone else have any other suggestions?
