Antique Bed Frame

This cute antique metal bed frame was one of those things you see...and you can't get it out of your head. All the possibilities just kept popping up in my head and I knew it would be perfect for my house. 
It was red, which was super cute but, the wrong color for my daughter's bedroom. You will probably remember that I just finished her room but, we were planning on changing her to a twin bed soon. She got the hand me downs from the guest room(full size bed) from the other house and we have been meaning to get her a different bed.
I love the cute details of the bed!
My daughter was excited that this would be her bed and she is being my great little helper!
One of the details that I love was that the original color of the frame was aqua or teal. So, I wanted to keep all the cool chips of paint showing through. I took a candle and filled the chips with wax so the paint would come off easily. I wanted this detail to stay!
I love the metal emblem!
I love the hot pink color!
Now that the bed is painted...I need bedding. The only thing about this is it takes a unique size matress so, I won't be able to purchase anything off the shelf SOOOOOO....I get to custom make the bedding. I am actually excited because I can make it pink and white to match the room and do the cording(trim) in the aqua blue that I painted the dresser. This bed will be one-of-a-kind and it will be perfect for a growing girl. I know she won't be able to use this bed forever but, couldn't you see this as the cutest outdoor furniture! Oh, the possibilities! Seriously SO cute! 
I will post pictures of all the pillows (there will be three) and bedding (duvet cover) as I finish it peice-by-peice!

Antique beds are usually titled by the primary influence, time period or country of origin from which they are produced. Generally speaking, this means that the bed will have a country adjective in front of it, such as Italian or Swiss. It might have the time period which could denote a country of origin, such as Victorian which might refer to the era or Victorian England.
