So I'm living in a place I don't intend to stay and trying to build a bed on an exceptionally tight budget (I have maybe $20 in spending cash every 2 weeks).
I want to make my bed temporary and cheap so I was considering, rather than buying wood, perhaps building it from cheap landscape cloth and a wooden frame. Has anyone seen anything or tried anything like this?
I was going to build a box structure from scraps of wood about 1x1", probably with posts every 2' and then staple the fabric on 5 sides (leaving the top open obviously). I don't know if this would be sturdy enough for a 8'x2'x1' structure (or maybe 2 4' long boxes). I could also reinforce it with a wire mesh like chicken wire. I'd look into getting scrap wood to build with but I don't have the tools to cut large pieces of wood.
As an aside, I'm building said bed on concrete. I've read this requires a layer of stones at the bottom for drainage but I read elsewhere that fabric on the bottom was fine. Any thoughts on that perhaps?
Any ideas or advice are very much appreciated.
