I have an old waterbed set of furniture that is solid oak. Of course, the waterbed was thrown away years ago, and a mattress sits in the frame. Any thoughts or suggestions on whether this furniture could be refinished, painted . . . something to update it??? The entire headboard/light bridge comes apart. So, I could be open to getting rid of all of that (Gosh hate to think what the heck I'd do with it though). I can also park a box spring in front of the headboard/light bridge and do away with the box frame and pedestal.
