We got a queen mattress and box springs from our friends that needed a little TLC so I set out to help it. The mattress was in pretty good condition, but you could kind of feel the springs. We are hoping to buy a foam thingy for it. But the box springs were in major need of help. The fabric-plasitcy cover looked as though it had water damage so I took it off to see how it was underneath. The inside looked great! I decided that I would recover the box springs strictly from scrap fabric that I owned so that it would be completely FREE!
I used old t-shirts that we had for the underneath.
