When we move, we plan on taking as little as possible. Kinda hard with a family of four and a billion baby things. One plan in the works is to ditch a baby bed and buy a new big-girl bed for Princess. I'm on the fence whether to get a twin or full. It will probably come down to the kind of deal I can get. I'm also stuck between wood or metal. Today, metal is winning. I remember having a white metal bed as a young girl. Oh, Mom, why did you give it away? I need it now! Oh, right the moving thing, I don't want to move it. :) Anyway, here are a few I am dreaming of for my little princess.
|Porto Bed Crate and Barrel|
Love the gentle lines in this one and the dark metal.
|Classic Iron Bed Pottery Barn Teen|
Ironically, I like the white metal of this one. I also like the details.
|Lillesand Bed, Ikea|
This one is simple, and its from Ikea, so it is cheap. I need to see it in the store to determine the quality of it before purchasing. Have I mentioned its cheap?
|Vignette bed, Land of Nod|
I think this one is my favorite. It has nice details, gentle curves, but the most expensive. (I think) I also love the bright pink bedding and the wall paper. I adore the wall paper. Crazy I know.
What do you think? Which one is your favorite?
UPDATE:********* My MIL has informed me her sister has an iron bed stored in her attic/basement/somewhere-in-their-house. AND I can have it for Princess! Yay! Of course it will need cleaned and repainted, but I like the idea of having a family heirloom for my princess. Of course I haven't seen it, but I'm not that concerned about the design aspect since it will be refinished. Another reason I can't wait for June!
