Years ago i inherited a twin bed. I gave all but the top mattress to my brother and sister in law. Well now they are moving and they returned the box spring with a new bed frame. Not exactly new. It used to belong to my sister in law's grandma. It needed a new paint job, though. I ventured to the walmart and bought a few cans of rustoleum and got busy. Bits of my grass are now red and my feet look a bit sunburned but i have a beautiful new bed frame to show for it! Thanks jeana!
