There are few things in my house which we have kept for a long time one of them is my grandfather’s bed. My grandfather used this bed in the village when he moved to the city he took some stuff with him. It Is a single bed, but it has drawers which are using for storage now.
It is s yellow in color, and it has a blue-colored design; also, it has a small wooden stick type something on the head side. Seating on this bed is always comfortable for everyone. This bed was built around 1980. It was build from super strong wood; also, it is so heavy to move.
