A straitforward platform bed with a touch of elegance via 4( 5 in the case of a king size) beautiful original french quarter balcony wrought iron. The platform and headboard are constructed of old growth heart pine lumber, used as framing in old new orleans homes. It features just a hint of old band saw marks and checks. Just enough character and vintage look but with a modern style overall. The bed comes in 4 pieces with instructions and should take no more than an hour to assemble. Remember the headboard is heavy thus shipping is a bit more, but I offset my price for this. This bed will last for generations and is rock hard solid! The listing is for a queen or full(please specify when purchasing). A king can be built for an additional $ 200,plus $100 for shipping.
