Garnet Hill Knockoff for $10.00


I had my eye on this bed from Garnet Hill for one of our spare bedrooms. I love the early 20th century time worn iron bedsteads. You may have heard me squealing when I found a similar one for ten dollars.


We went to to garage sales over Memorial Day Weekend, and there was a teenager selling the iron headboard and footboard. I asked him where he got it, and he said he was hiking in the woods near his camp when he spotted it. When I saw the price of $10, I couldn't get it loaded into our truck fast enough. And I wish you could have seen his face. He was thrilled to make ten dollars.


All we had to do was sand it and give it a coat of  spray paint. My husband attached it to the bed frame for me. 

 I am joining these hostesses:

Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday  
Marty @ A Stroll Through Life for Inspire Me Tuesday

I have been featured at Knockoff Decor.

  1. Love your new iron bed. And you couldn't beat that $10 price....
    I just gave a granddaughter my vintage iron full size bed. She is only 11 and already loves antiques and vintage. It looks adorable in her room. :)
    I like your gossip bench, too. One stood in the hall at our old homeplace as I was growing up and I'd give a thousand dollars for it, now. It most likely went into one of my mom's famous garage sales. :)
    I just linked up to follow you thru bloglovin and Google Friend...I thought I'd followed you all along but, when I checked, sure 'nuf....I wasn't. I AM NOW, THO. :))

  3. Hi Debbie! Oh, I love your iron bed and you do know you stole that, don't you? :) We had one just like it and used it for my daughter. This was in the late 80s and we had painted it mauve. Sounds yucky today but back then it was so pretty. I could kick myself that I sold it at a garage sale! :) Thanks for your sweet visit.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  6. I am looking for an iron bed, myself. Back in the 70s, I saw them everywhere, but nowdays they're hen's teeth. What a buy!!! And it's just gorgeous. Your "nesting" pillow looks perfectly at home.

  8. What a fantastic find, Debbie! I'm sure the one one Garnet Hill was NOT anywhere near $10! It looks so inviting for your guests--a perfect place to nest for the winter. Linda

  9. Wow! Debbie, what a find! I imagine you did squeal. I would have too. It looks so pretty in your bedroom, and I cannot believe you only paid $10 for it. That teenager was meant to find it for you. laurie

  12. I love the bed! I had vintage iron beds for my children growing up, now they're stored in the attic. Once I get a spare room, I plan on setting up both in the same room. I love the old metal or iron beds! As a bonus, with children, they are almost indestructible!
