After the remodel, SWMBO wants a wrought iron canopy bed for our
bedroom. I've always fancied them myself so I suppose she'll get what
she wants. In my searches I've found tremendous variety in styles and
prices, from plain and simple to highly ornate, from $200 up to several
I guess one of my biggest fears is ending up with a bed that will be
flimsy and noisy (wobbly and creaky, etc.) despite tight connections
and heavy iron bars. I'm a metalworker, so I could weld everything
together solid but I figure if I spend $1000 or more on a bed frame, it
better not move more than 1/8" in any direction when I tighten all the
bolts, and I most definitely shouldn't have to make any after-market
If you own (or have owned) a wrought iron bed, how do you like it?
Would you recommend it to others and if not why not? Care to share
brand, purchase price, experiences* good or bad?
*Keep them clean. :)
