Not all spaces allow for a box spring, whether you love them or hate them, it's not something you think about until you try to weasel one around a doorway built in the 50's. Sometimes, no matter how many colorful words are used, it just won't budge that extra inch. We ran across a great tutorial that fixes this problem and makes your box spring... wait for it... collapsible!

We must admit, the first thing that came across our mind when we saw this tutorial for making a collapsible box spring on Instructables, was that there are some things that shouldn't be hacked. It would seem that living without a box spring might be an easier alternative, but we were persuaded by the number of people who had tried it themselves with great (and quick success).

Would you go through the hassle of modding your bedframe? Or would you rather make your own platform bed instead? Many of you have! Or just keep your mattress on the floor? Leave us a comment and let us know below!
