Ikea Lonset slats under bed in 5.0TA
Hi, We saw the posts for using Ikea slats on the queen bed in the 19. We got a set used on Craigslist and thought we could use them without modifications.. Once we wrestled them under the mattress we realized they are just a bit too long. We sawed the vertical ends flush with the horizontal ends (about 1/2 inch). Fits perfectly. Does raise the factory mattress about 3 inches, but we can still sit up. (Husband is 6'2") Really made the bed much more comfortable. Thanks for the tips.
