Fabric Covered Box Spring

 I'm not a big fan of bedskirts, so instead, 
I covered the box spring.

I found the perfect fabric from West Elm and my cousin was able to get me a discount.

I measured the height of the box spring and added 4", 2" for the top and 2" for the bottom.

I cut four strips.  I sewed two strips together for one box spring and two strips for the other.  
(king beds have two twin box springs under them)
Then I started stapling.

I started at the front and worked my way around the sides.

It came out great!
I love the fabric.
