Round Iron Bed

 I just love this time of year it keeps me motivated to get things done around the house and yard.
Not saying neither one is tip top shape however liveable. LOL

I am rearranging my house downstairs where my studio and another guest room is. I have this heavy beautiful 1800's  iron bed I bought years ago in an antique shop from one of our river towns.anyway I can't move the thing and I am going to sell it so I can paint the floor in this bedroom. I can surely find another bed like a day bed that I will like as much

                                                            


This bed must weigh 500 lbs ?  LOL I remember buying it and struggling to get it in my house , however I just love it because it was the first round iron bed I had ever seen

                                                                   


This is the head board in the above picture
I have changed the bed covering several times, It's time to remove the pink quilts and put the white lace cover back on. It's such a nice day ,no rain anyway I can hang the bedding outside on the clothes line to dry 



I have never painted it I always wanted to paint it white and friends told me no leave it like it is , so here it is black and gold

  1. Oh my gosh, Janice, I WISH I lived near enough to take that baby! It is so beautiful, so unique in its shape. I have never seen a round one like that! Are you sure you want to sell it? I understand your sentiment about the weight, but oh boy, is it ever a beauty!

  4. This is AWESOME!!! Oh, I would give my eye teeth for that, (are my Southern roots showing? lol!) But for the thousand miles between us, and the 500 pound weight of the bed, I'd snap it up in a heart beat!

  6. Oh my goodness... that bed is wonderful! I've never seen one like it. I'd love to have it, but I can't stick one more piece of furniture in here or my house would burst. I'm glad you never painted it :)

    Have a great week,

  10. Just a note to tell you that I use MAGIC SLIDERS to move furniture around in my shop. I once used them to move a 400 Lb woodstove in the basement. I've bought cheaper ones, but they don't hold up week in week out like this As Seen on TV kind work. I keep them permanently under the store counter so I can clean under it. The bed is so beautiful and unusual.

  11. Oh that is drop dead gorgeous Janice!! Never seen anything like that either ~ I can believe it weighs a ton...they sure don't make them like they use to ~ I got a headboard 20 + years ago and you can pick it up and carry it around with one hand lol!!! Enjoyed your hydrangeas below...gosh...never can get enough hydrangeas for sure!! Hope you are having a delightful week!

  12. This is an awesome bed! Not sure if I would paint it or not, but I would love it!

  13. It's a beautiful bed...would be hard for me to let go of it. Maybe you could use good furniture sliders to move it around as you paint the floor. You don't see beds like that often..what a beauty!
