How to convert an antique Full size bed to Queen size

Converting this turn of the century Victorian bed from Full to Queen size was definitely fun.  I post a lot of projects here, but I'd make a note that not all beds can be converted in mattress-size-chartthis way.  This particular bed just happened to be a candidate due to its design.  When converting a bed from Full to Queen size, you have to increase both its length and width as a Full size mattress is 54" x 75" but a Queen mattress comes in at 60" x 80".  The image to your left is a good graphical mattress size chart.

Let's take a look at the process.
