Painting the Iron Bed- what color?

8:34 AM Katy 17 Comments

I'm envisioning a white room (plank ceiling, painted floors - everything). I think I want to paint the iron bed a color.

(this is after some DIY sandblasting earlier)

Question is: what color? Should I stick with turquoise or some other "safe" beach color, or go with yellow or bright red?

These pictures are not helping my indecision:

I can't make up my mind.

  1. Love this iron bed! I think any bright color would be gorgeous but I have been lusting after a bright turquoise iron bed for awhile so that is definitely what I would go with.

  2. I like the turquoise too. I have an iron crib that I want to paint. It is full of rust. I left it outside since the paint on it was flaking, then forgot about it and want to take care of it now. What type of paint will you be using?
    Thanks!

  7. Katy I have to say tangerine orange, bright but still a soft orange. So fun to start fresh, can't wait to see the outcome in the room someday!

  9. For what it's worth, I'm partial to the turquoise bed with punches of red and/or yellow in bedding. Or maybe even a sea green bed. Good luck choosing! = )

  13. I think you should figure out a bright version of the bottle glass color from your soda bottles you saved. So what ... turquoise-ish? Coca cola colors, red and bottle green/blue.

  16. Great looking bed. Here's a gorgeous yellow one to throw into the mix - and it gets my vote. http://gracie-senseandsimplicity.blogspot.ca/2011/11/wish-wednesday-4.html

  17. I think it depends what other items are definitely going to be in the room and pull out a bright color from them. Depends on amt of space you have...in our tiny beach house every room has articles that have to be in it. No empty space here!!
    Anyway, turquoise is pretty but I think maybe b/c so common, especially in beach area I'd personally go orange, red, Or Kelly/grass green. Very cool bed!
