I desperately need to store my excess stuff like suitcases etc under the bed and outta sight.. But how do i raise my bed since its an odd shape with no legs., just these heavy boards.
I read on yahoo answers that cinder blocks work.. Do they really? Are they safe and sturdy raisers?
What kind do i need? How many do i need? Where do i buy them?
Update: Thank you for all your answers so far.. I need to raise my bed about 4 to 6 inches i guess.. since all my suitcases are currently looking ugly stacked in a corner of the room. Also do i need cinder blocks or concrete? And where do i buy them> And what sizes are they available... show more Thank you for all your answers so far..
