You can call this a really sturdy bed, because it is made of queen bed frame metal corner profiles. To be precise angle irons. You could make a similar bed yourself, but outsourcing it to a local metal worker is not a luxury. The metal is rather thick and therefore difficult to saw. For the purists, and before I am posted in comment, an old wrought iron bed patina is better than a brand new thing!
I agree, but I will still buy it new, because unfortunately, I do not have time to hunt. And then, the problem of old beds is that often they do not have standard dimensions. The metal bed is a classic children’s room. Timeless, they are suitable for all styles, as shown in these examples: retro, contemporary, catalectique, boy, girls …
By taste, I like when they are refined without arabesques, but for a “princess”, why not? There are even some with bed skies. Every season, Ikea publishes an evolutive metal child bed . The design varies over time. In commerce, there are pretty imitations of old beds easy to assemble and disassemble, with current colors . There are at all prices, but beware, not all are provided with the box spring, which explains prices that can really differ.
