Daydreamers delight in creating your own cozy spot from this painted iron bed. Shabby chic to the core, this dark peach/mauve chippy paint frame came out of a barn of an old estate in Central Pennsylvania. I'm guessing this may go back to the early 1900's and would make a lovely addition to the garden also. It does have two iron rail sides, which you can use in various ways - both sides in for a crib look, one side in and the other lowered for daybed use, or leave both sides out for a garden seat effect.

I have cleaned and varnished the frame to maintain the wonderful chip-paint patina, but you could strip and re-paint to match any decor. The total frame measures: 60" long, 35.5" wide (crib size mattress would fit with extra room on all sides (which is shown in the photos) and 44" at highest point. You may also have the mattress that was used in the photos; it is a little bit smaller than the frame at 51"Lx26.5"Wx5"deep (there is a total of 54-58" length for a custom cushion), but if used with pillows/bolsters it can work fine. This mattress came with the antique bed and is in very used condition; it has a plastic covering, which has only been wiped down, you may want to cover it for actual use.

The chenille bedspread is not included in the sale, you are buying just the bed frame and the mattress, if you want. It is quite heavy, but does come apart into sections and will be shipped laying flat. When checking out, please let me know if you'd like the mattress as well or not.
