Found two of these beds in a scrap yard awaiting melt down.  Got them for $15.00.  Alot of sand blasting, a good paint job and they are beautiful.  I have one for each daughters room.

I saw two of these old beds in a scrap yard all rusted and nasty.  My son made fun and could not see their potential.  I think they turned out great.
