OK, back story.

These bed frames have been in the rafters of the old garage since Pre 68. Google shows 1900ish on the this older one ? Maybe? Info as well as marketability are all over the map here and BFtalk.com is for best friends...

Measures about 4.5 x 6 ft

The second one is newer and hollow. While still old, I am guessing and 40-50's here

Anyone give me a decent lead on if these are something to keep, unload, scrap, or ???

Add headlights to the second one and spray it orange. Dead ringer for a Power King.

All I can tell you is that if my wife had them they would be "flower beds"

Alan, I haven't a clue as to value. Sell them on e-bay to the highest bidder!

I'd say they might be worth some money, find an antique dealer , someone out there would  restore or reuse them....

While they may not be worth a tremendous amount of money, I would agree with Lmiller's thoughts and do some asking around at some local antique places. You migth sell them to a dealer who could restore them for resale. Or, you could do that yourself.

 

 

"and BFtalk.com is for best friends..."

So which one is you BFF? (bed frame forever) sleep-in-bed.gif

You could always have it restored by the American Restorations TV show crew.

 

It should only cost $8000ish.

My daughters first real bed was quite similar to the first bed pictured,as far as value goes I've seen beds in similar condition go for upwards of $100 at local auctions.My daughters bed has about the same story as MH81's bed as we pulled it from the attic of an old farm house before the mines knocked it down.
