About a year in a half ago I was talking to my parents about making a new headboard and they told me there was an antique bed frame in their garage. It had been there since we moved into the house (which was in December of 1994), up on some shelf.
Why this was never told to me, I'm not sure, but down the frame came and I feel in love with it. By best guess it looks to be at least from the 1940's. It needs to be sanded, the varnish has globbed up. Being the lazy person I am, the bed frame sat in my parents garage for a year, until tonight.
I am on a decorating kick this week, so dad brought over the bed frame and I put it together all excited to have a piece of history in my bedroom. I haven't sanded the frame yet, that will probably take another year...well at least six months!
After I put the frame together and tried to put my box spring on it, I discovered mattress doesn't fit. Well shoot! Seriously!?
