We had the Captain's old iron bed powder coated red and I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I am with the end result. I wanted the bed to be a little pop of colour in amongst everything else and it most definitely is!
The powder coat guy thought that I was crazy choosing red. He questioned my husband when he dropped the bed off and even rang me to confirm that I was going to spend "good money powder coating a bed lipstick red." Oh yes I happily reassured him, although I do prefer fire engine red as a description for it!
Now I just need to hang some art on the walls... what to do, what to do...
I seriously can't stop grinning at how good that bed looks and I have now got my beady little eyes fixed on the bed in the spare room!
