An Iron Bed
I found these pictures on pinterest - this one is a vintage iron bed, and the other is a Laura Ashley, only available in Britain. The "Somerset Cream Bed" is listed on Apartment Therapy as "Beds We'd Love to Own", and selling for about 2000 pounds.
Then I found this:
Notice any similarities?
I bought it from Sears, in US dollars, for a fraction of the cost of the Laura Ashely. I am going to spray paint it bright white.
It shipped in four days, and is now set up on my bed. I only got the headboard, as the room is not huge and I like having the bottom of the bed open to collapse on after work.
I will paint it as soon as it warms up outside. I usually don't find great bargains, but I am pretty impressed with this one.
