The cabinet is about 8' tall and 7' wide and has 30 fairly square 15" deep cubbies for storing lots of stuff. I can't see taking it apart to try to fit in a mattress frame, but then, I didn't describe this cabinet before. It's put to good use filled with my sewing and craft stuff.

I've made a lot of progress, the bed is in the corner, the fossilized cat barf is mopped off of the floor from where the bed stood for the last 10+ years (there were old pieces of antique bed frames and slats stored under there and the cats, in their last days, seem to have hidden among them and been ill). I am now looking around the house for a small table I might use in there to shift the sewing machines off of the long table. I moved in one small cupboard already that will work for some storage of things; if I can rearrange some more stuff I can use the large table that now has 2 sewing machines instead for cutting cloth. But I need a table that doesn't have hinges or slats because I'd be losing pins and whatnot through the gaps. I have a lot of funky tables that won't work but I can probably trade them out around the house and find something. There's one in my office I can move to my bedroom . . .

Not quite someone's "Futility Room" or "Glory Hole" but this room has been a smallish black hole allowing me to ignore things I'm never going to use and really don't need to be keeping. There is one piece of furniture that may go to the Goodwill and a bag of trash to the curb when all of this is finished. I didn't touch the long narrow closet, that is its own disturbing storage space that my daughter will have to tackle one of these days.
