Several months ago I asked my (welder) husband if he would fix one of my antique iron beds so that we could use it with our queen size mattress. It is a bed that I bought at an estate sale years ago and used it in a guest room for a while. You can see another one in my guest room here. When I had a booth in an antique mall I sold lots of iron beds and my hubby would adjust the length of the rails.
I had to eliminate my large Euro sham pillows because they covered too much of the pretty headboard. Here is the result . . . and I love it!
