This is the fourth and last installment of the posts concerning the Victorian spool bed I modified to accommodate a queen size mattress. I used Google's Sketchup to design the bed and thought it fitting to go back and match up the perspectives with the actual completed piece. This bed is usable as a 3/4 size bed (measuring 48 inches in width) or with the new bed extenders as a queen size bed. I took photos of it set up both ways. The first three photos below show the bed as a 3/4 bed. The first photo is my drawing from Sketchup.
The next three photos show the bed with the bed extenders. Again, the first photo is from Sketchup.
One quick note, when I delivered the bed the owner informed me that it had been either made or bought by her great grandfather as a marriage present for his wife in 1865. I changed the date in the heading above to reflect this!
