Me? Loads of things. I take a lot of my crafting inspiration from...well...everywhere. Today, I can't seem to get my mind away from benches made out of old beds and porch beds. I just LOVE them!! And I REALLY want a house with big front and back porches, and enough yard to accommodate a gazebo, so I can put some of these beauties everywhere...
I even love the little suspended window!
Isn't this dreamy? Love the iron gate/fencing they used for the headboard.
Got a man in your life with welding skills? Or, even better, do YOU have welding skills? Don't overlook those old metal beds for a neat look.
This one has to be one of my faves - the company that made it is out of business, but who could resist that eyelet bed skirt & picket fence headboard?!? So country....so romantic....so COOL!
This one was made from baby bed parts. Can't you see that in an entry way or a mudroom?
This would work on a front porch, in your entry way, or even on the long side of a dining table (indoors OR outdoors)!
Look at garage sales, Craigslist, or your local FreeCycle group on Yahoo for partial baby cribs...you might end up with something that looks like this...
I adore this one! It just invites you to curl up with a Jane Austen novel, a pitcher of lemonade, a plate full of cookies, and swing your day away.
You can have people make them for you, if you want one and aren't the crafty type. People like Extraordinary Coastal Living or Porch Beds Biz. If you have the tools and feel ambitious, you could probably make one in a weekend, like Rechelle did. Can't figure out the proportions for your dream bed? Ana White has plans you can follow here and here.
Of course, looking at these dreamy ideas makes me spin off into pondering other things...but I'll save those for another visit. Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
