A sturdy new metal bed

Put the last coat of shiny red paint on this bed project today. This bed frame is custom made to fit an extra-long mattress. The headboard and footboard are bolted to the frame rails. For added support a removable metal bar spans the frame. Strength and simplicity ruled the design for this project. I hope it provides a great place to sleep.

Bright red enamel paint covers the headboard. Glossy black coats the rails. I left the nuts, bolts and washers exposed. I think they look better that way.
