Color, color, color! This looks all 'dream home', but since there are plenty of old iron bedsteads with built-in box springs on Craigslist for one to three hundred, and the only other costs are the mattress and a powder-coat paint job, this setup could price out about equivalent to a brand new bed frame.
This shade of "green" was one of the most popular colors being used in the early 1800's. This "wedding ring" style bed still has it's original paint job with subtle gold accented castings. #ironbeds #antiqueironbeds
