I'm in love. With my husband, and this beautifully chippy iron bed he brought home today from a resale shop. He knew I would love it.
It's 53 inches wide and 62 inches at the highest point.
I love the patina on this piece. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but I love it, love it, love it.
Last week I was without my computer for two days, and it felt like two weeks. I'm still catching up. I'll be back with finds, redesigns, tutorials, etc.

I like your bed, it is great. I had one very simuliar that I bought when I lived in New York. I got it at an estate sale and the owner was Christie Brinkley and Peter cook, they were getting a big D. That was in Montauk ,New York ,aka,the Hampton's. I paid $900.00. I bet you all got a better price. I am so glad he found it for you. Just Great. Richard from My Old Historic House.ReplyDelete

Wow, I've always wanted a brass bed, and this one's gorgeous! I wouldn't change a thing. Wouldn't it be fabulous under a big white net/canopy hanginfg from the ceiling above the bed? Your husband's a keeper!ReplyDelete
Do you ever keep any of the stuff that you find? You have supreme willpower.ReplyDelete

OMG!!! I love this bed. I know whatever you do with it will be fabulous, but it's just so perfectly rusty, chippy, shabby now, I'd just pile on some white linens and laceReplyDelete
Your husband's a great picker.
I love it, love it, love it too. Wish my husband had the eye yours does. :-)ReplyDelete

Your husband has done it again! He really finds great things, doesn't he? It's hard to figure out what to do with this bed because it's so perfect to begin with! Still, I know you'll work your magic and make it even more perfect! Thanx for sharing! Hugs, LeenaReplyDelete

Ahem.......I think I love your husband too *winks* He has quite the eye for treasure. I too had almost the same bed, but in white iron. Yours is gorgeous just the way it is. And I'm glad your puter is back and running. VannaReplyDelete
Wow ! Beautiful bed ,can't wait to see what you do to it ,if anything.ReplyDelete
I love iron beds .
That is a beautiful bed. Although it would be pretty white, I also like it just like it is. Bet it would be pretty as a garden trellis too. You're very lucky to have a husband with a good eye for these things.ReplyDelete
Oh goodness, what a gorgeous bed! I have been looking for something like that for YEARS with no luck!!ReplyDelete

That bed is very similar to the bed my husband and I bought when we first got married 40 plus years ago. We still use it in our guest bedroom and love it. It's been painted a few times (our daughter used it for a while and painted it HOT pink). It's been a fun piece of furniture and you'll make yours a wonderful addition to your home I'm sure. Yes you DO have a nice husband!ReplyDelete
I love it, too!! Love the chippy, rusty, patina look. If I had it, I would not do a thing but clean it, and throw a beautiful comforter and lots of pillows on it. Great find. Visiting from Treasure Hunt Thursday.ReplyDelete
Your hubby is certainly a keeper, Rosemary! That bed is absolutely gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Hi Rosemary - I'm coming to you via MMS FFF - and I think it's pretty amazing - how many times have I seen a thumbnail and thought, "Oh that one looks interesting," and when I click on it, it comes to YOU! It's always a pleasant surprise, and if I could, I'd follow you more than once.:)ReplyDelete
How thoughtful and sweet of your husband to bring this incrediable bed home, LOVE IT!!! XO ChristieReplyDelete
Back in the day when one husband and I bought our first house I bought an old iron bed at a real junk store and paid $10.00 for it. It was our honeymoon bed I was buying all used stuff thats what they called it then, now it's vintageReplyDelete
love your new bed girl and love that husband for thinking of you
That bed is amazing Rosemary! Thanx for coming to the party lady! Hope your weekend is going well!ReplyDelete
