Antique wroght iron bed convertion to queen

I need help, I have a beautiful double size wrought iron bed. It has pin and hitch side rails.
I have a tempurpedic adjustable bed, So I'd like to convert it to a queen size.
Does anyone know how to do this without damaging the bed?
Are there convertion kits out there?
Any thoughts?
Thanks Carol

A full size bed has a mattress that is 54 inches wide and 72 inches long. A queen size is 60 inches wide and 80 inches long. I think it will be quite difficult to adapt your bed to accept a queen-size mattress.

I don't understand why you would want to do this, or how such thing would be possible. I don't know how any mattress could be altered to fit a different sized bed. I think you have to buy the appropriate mattress size for the frame. Anything else you do will more than likely ruin the mattress.

melfallen: the OP wants to modify the frame, not the mattress
