Iron Beds & The Guest Bedroom

This is our guest bedroom. Notice the lack of headboard. It has been that way for two years now.

This is how the room looked before I decided I wanted to go a different route. I had painted in red our door headbard that The Hubster and I built 10 years ago. 
Big mistake! I attempted to strip it over a year and half ago and well it STILL is sitting out in the garage waiting to be finished. 
In comes this beauty that I found for sale on our community FaceBook page. My heart skipped a beat. I was not sure it was going to work but for $40 and the offer of them bringing it to me I figured it was worth a shot.
I was delighted that it actually fit! This piece is just what this space needed. I am sure the GPs will enjoy having a headboard again!;)

I like the finish on it and it goes well in the room. Later on down the road I may decide to chippy it up to make it look vintage.

Now if I can only find a different bedside table and finish this little corner up. And yes, I do see the alarm clock on the floor!;) Oops.
As for the headboard out in the garage I think I will finish it up and use it for Oldest once he graduates from a twin bed.

  2. That was a wonderful buy! It looks great in your guest room.

  3. Love that iron bed. Looks beautiful in your guest room.

    Hugs from here

  4. Don't throw away the old red headboard. The half-stripped condition is perfect for a Texas primitive sort of look. I'm actually looking to do a bedroom in that style right now and was salivating over that headboard!

  5. Great find and the prices was great.
    Looks really good in your Guest Bedroom. I also love the red headboard.

  6. It's super gorgeous Pamela!!! Love Iron beds too! Wanted to get a brass one though recently, but no space! AAAhhh! Love the one you and your hubs made too, maybe you can make it weathered finish just like RH!

  7. Pamela
    It is so pretty. I love the headboard. I m just finishing up a guest room and trying to figure out a headboard. Love the iron look

  8. LUV!!! Iron headboards make me swoon....

  9. I like vintage looking iron headboards and yours was a great deal. We also are without a headboard in our guest suite and I was drooling over your wood door headboard! So glad you are keeping it for your oldest.

  10. Pamela that headboard looks fabulous in that pretty!

  11. I love iron head boards, I'm thinking of getting one for my oldest grand-girl. Great job!

  12. I love your iron bed. It was well worth the money and delivery included?

    Red paint is really hard to strip from something, isn't it? xo Diana

  13. The black headboard looks great in your guest room, it made such a difference, settled the bed right down.

  14. It's fab! I'll be interested to see if it does go chippy, because I have a black one in my daughters room that I've thought of tampering with! I also love the door headboard and this is also something I'm going to do. x

  15. You are right about the brass beds being timeless. I wanted one years ago, and chose something different. Now I wish I had gone with brass.

  16. Pamela, what a great deal you got on that bed. Very pretty and I just adore those pillows on the bed.

    We bought our youngest daughter a beautiful white iron bed frame recently . . . and I'm in love.
    They have so much charm.
    A wonderful addition to your home.
    Thanks for sharing!

  24. It looks perfect! I've been looking for a pair of iron headboards for my twin beds. Wish me luck!

  25. Oh, the headboard is beautiful and what a deal you got. I could kick myself as I had and old iron headboard and footboard and my daughter used it until she wanted a daybed. I sold it at a garage sale for nothing! :(
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  26. Your headboard looks great.I love iron beds too. I bought mine from Bombay Co. about 12 years ago and I still love it. That's a record for me seeing as how I'm usally tired of a thing after a couple of years LOL!
