Cast Iron Beds

It seems where ever I look I’m seeing cast iron beds. It is a great idea if you want country without being too fussy.

I have a story coming out in the next issue of Country Style Magazine featuring a lovely old farmhouse in Mudgee (about 3.5 hrs north west of Sydney). Owner Kathy Collins used cast iron beds throughout to create a vintage but slightly industrial country look. I prefer them painted rather than bare metal.
There is an old brass and cast iron bed in my shed that I have been meaning to paint for my daughter’s bedroom, so I guess I’ll have to get busy…
