What kind of bed frame could I get that wouldn't require a box spring?
I need one that's really cheap.
You can use a standard frame, and use plywood in place of the box spring. It will sit low. Or you can go to a thrift store and see if they have a frame and box spring. You can probably get both real cheap.
Go to ikea...lots o f ideas there and lots of cheap bed frames that doesn't require box spring
