These iron headboards were our first treasures from our favorite local junk sale.  We were looking for something to frame our boring concrete slab patio.  My husband actually found these and this amazing sale while garage saleing in our area.  I will be eternally grateful!!!  We painted them and installed them a few years ago.  They are just now showing that perfect rusty "peek" through.
