Now he knows for sure
I listed the bed on Craigslist with the mattress being optional. We'd had to bend it to get it upstairs when we moved here and I think we did some damage - it wasn't very comfortable. But if the bed buyer needed a mattress, they were welcome to it.
Well, someone did buy the platform bed but didn't want the mattress, which is what I was secretly hoping for. You see, I have a couple of chairs that need to be reupholstered and resprung, and that mattress was going to turn into free materials for me to experiment with reupholstering! So very carefully, I began the process of dismantling the mattress:
Beneath the foam layer, I found more of the carpet-pad type material. As much as I wanted to get that off too, it's really tough and hard to cut and I was getting tired at this point... I left it on the frame.
