OUTDOORS IDEA FOR OLD IRON/METAL BED FRAME

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL IDEA FOR THIS VINTAGE IRON BED FRAME!

NEW MEANING TO THE WORD "FLOWER BED"

MAKE SURE THAT YOU SAND OFF ANY RUST FROM THE METAL FRAME, CLEAN WELL, DRY, AND USE SOMETHING LIKE KILZ PAINT TO PRIME BEFORE TOPCOATING, MAKE SURE ANY PAINT YOU USE IS  FOR METAL. AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR, INSPECT FOR NEW RUST SPOTS,ETC., AND KEEP PRIMED AND PAINTED.

 IF YOU DON’T HAVE WHOLE FRAME, YOU CAN USE A  HEADBOARD OR FOOTBOARD AS A ‘FENCE’ OF SORTS FOR ANOTHER SPOT OF  FLOWERS!

  2. Iron beds are beds in which the headboard and footboard are made of iron; the frame rails are usually made of steel. Iron beds were developed in 17th century Italy to address concerns about infestation by bed bugs and moths. An iron cradle (with dangerously pointed corner posts) has been dated to 1620-1640.[4] From the start of their production in the 1850s until World War I, iron beds were handmade. The manufacturing process included hand pouring and polishing intricately detailed casting and hand applying finishes. In the many small foundries of the time that employed only a handful of employees, it could take days to produce a single bed. *
