Need help Reinforcing Antique Bed (pics)
Hi! I'm new to antiques. I just bought from an auction a Louis XVI walnut double bed for my guest room. It has the side rails.
Here are close-ups of the side rails:
The deliverer suggested I reinforce the bed before anyone sleeps on it. He said to run a board inside the length of the siderail, then place several supports spanning across the width of the bed from those siderail supports. He also stated to have a few vertical supports in the middle. Is this what you would do?
I'd appreciate any input!
