How to Put a Mattress On Top Of White Metal Bed Frame Full
white metal bed frame full – If you find an antique bed on a wind, a property sale or even a wreck, you have to convert it to accept a regular mattress before using it.
Attach a set of bed converter rails especially made for antique white metal bed frame full to the gable and foot boards. The rails must have antique metal bed fittings. Antique beds used different fittings than modern beds. If you buy modern bed converter rails, they will not fit on an antique bed. Measure the length and width of the antique bed. The width of the bed is measured in different ways depending on whether they resemble an upward-facing L shape or a downward facing L-shape.
Measure the width of the bed from the outside of the rail on one side on the outside of the rail on the other side at the head, middle and foot of the rail, if the bed frame has brackets that resemble a downward facing L-shape. Subtract the width of the rail, which is usually half an inch for clearance. Insert two-by-four bed slats intended for a regular queen in the bed placed 1 foot in addition to the foot to the head of the bed to support the bed. Place the box springs directly over the bed slats so that the head and foot on board the bed are centered. Place the mattress over the box springs so that the head and foot on board are centered. Antique white metal bed frame full may seem dwarfed if you use a full-size queen box spring and pillow-top mattress.
