Repurpose bed frame?

Posted by capnbecki (My Page) on

I have a metal-painted-like-wood bed frame that is VERY old and was passed down from my great-great-grandmother. I love it, but it is too small. The head and footboards are held together with metal posts that are hammered into joints on the frame, and there are wheels on the bottom of the headboard and footboard. Is there any way to repurpose this? I have no room to put it elsewhere. I was thinking of getting a plain frame and maybe still using the headboard somehow, but if there were a way to be more creative with it, I'd love to hear any ideas. Thank you.

Your bed frame is a antique. I have two that are similar in description but are larger. Have you thought about making it into a sofa for on a covered back porch? Add some large pillows. It could make a great place for an afternoon nap or a nice place to curl up and read on a too hot day.

Have you seen the benches made from old bed frames in the Garden Junk forum?

I just saw a new use for old head boards, and foot boards. One Decorating Cents, they used an old frame for the top and sides of an arbor. Head was on top of two big square posts, with sides made from foot. Maybe you could fashion something similar.
