This is a bed that a customer of mine has in her collection .It was a bed that her mom slept on when she was a child. Note the foot-boards radius wings.Had pink and white paint on it at one time ,Sprayed 2 coats primer and 5 coats white latex to finish it off.Saved from the landfill and hope it lasts for quite a few more generations
