The Handy Living Bed Frame will raise your mattress up without the need for a box spring. This frame can be placed in an area for guests for a few nights, or it can be used in a bedroom for long-term use. You can put your mattress directly onto it for a good night's sleep with eight sturdy legs supporting this black steel bed frame. If you are placing it in a bedroom permanently, a stylish standard length bed skirt can be used with this frame to match your room's current decor. This mattress bed frame is light enough to carry from room to room for more convenience.
