Debra from Mountain Breaths had been eyeing an iron bed for her guest room. She says, “I love the early 20th century time worn iron bedsteads. You may have heard me squealing when I found a similar one for ten dollars.” Yep, you heard right – $10! Debra pretty much stole both the headboard and footboard from a garage sale for only ten bucks. All the pieces needed were a light sanding and coat of spray paint, and now they’re ready to receive guests!
Becky from Reinventing the Ordinary loved the look and functionality of a Pottery Barn storage bed for her daughter’s college room but needed a cheaper alternative. Surprisingly, college tuition doesn’t really leave an extra $1000 sitting in the bank for a bed! Becky created a fabulous $100 version with some beadboard, molding, and plywood that fit their needs (and budget) to perfection!
