My parents just got a new bed to match the rest of their bedroom furniture...so they gave me their old one. And I mean old. This bed has been in my mom's family since 1835! Several generations were born in it- including my grandmother.
It's solid walnut, in amazingly good shape, and very tall. It used to have a trundle bed to go underneath it...but after my grandmother died, and my granddad remarried, my horrible stepmother got rid of a lot of her things. Thank God this bed wasn't one of them! I'm glad it gets to stay in the family. My sister didn't want it.
