Jeff and 'Manda are moving abroad and want to get rid of extra apartment stuff!
Almost twenty years ago, I found myself in a barn in Connecticut looking at an old rusted antique bed frame. I had the frame refurbished and expanded to fit a queen sized mattress and box spring. The result was a beautiful, very sturdy, antique bed frame that I loved from my first apartment in Manhattan, where my bedroom was as only as big as that bed, through multiple moves, until I ultimately settled down in a co-op in Brooklyn. After having a baby, we decided that the bed's delicate decorative parts were not suitable for a toddler, and eventual rambunctious preschooler, so the frame was dissembled and placed behind a bookcase in the apartment, where it now resides.
Now we are moving out of the country and have decided to try and sell this lovely, wonderful bed frame rather than take it with us. The bed frame is terrific, and I hope it can go to a good new home. It's taller than modern beds so has tons of space underneath for storage. The four posts are sturdy and has three cross-beams supporting the box springs. The decorative parts, however, are delicate, although it does not affect the structural integrity of the bed itself. The frame fits a modern queen sized mattress and box spring.
More pictures can be taken once it is take out from behind the bookcase.
