All I can say is "BIG"..........this is a big bed. Of course I knew it was queen size since that's what I wanted and have slept on for fourty years. BUT, when you get a poster bed, it can really look big with the posts that go up 7 ft. 3 inches without the poster top.
I forgot a picture but I'm reconsidering the black and white with the golden walls with all the brown of the wood on this bed.
Oh well...it will be some time before I get things fixed enough to move in there anyway.
Husband said "the queen of england doesn't have a bed this big".
