Iron Beds For Little Girls

My good friend Danielle is ready to move her daughter Cate from her cozy crib to a genuine “big girl” bed. The bed is important because it will be the cornerstone piece for creating a new sophisticated room for her little lady to host her daily tea parties. Danielle’s vision includes a white iron bed with an antique look and feel. Her first source for inspiration was of course logging on to Project Nursery and searching our extensive Gallery for ideas (good girl Danielle!). Unfortunately, her search did not bring up many results. The challenge was on for us to find some great options for Cate’s new bed. Aside from being well-made and adorable, Danielle’s main criteria is that the bed frame be on the narrow side. We found some solid options for her to investigate but we welcome any ideas from our readers!

Pottery Barn Kids Allie Bed – $399

American Iron Beds – Briston Bed $400


Boutique Bed From Land of Nod – $699

Bunny Iron Bed by Corsican – $1099

    I was faced with the same dilema when doing a room for our daughter. The room was small and needed to house a lot of stuff. I ended up buying a iron daybed with a trundle for those sleepovers that would happen. My daughter is now 24 and the daybed will be used for her daughter. The bed was built to last.

    I’ve been planning the same thing, an iron bed for my daughter when she is ready for her big girl bed. Although I was thinking of a colored one, maybe yellow. The two I’ve been looking at are the Spring Garden bed by Lea Industries: http://www.rosenberryrooms.com/311-spring-garden-metal-bed-twin.html and the Sparrow bed by Wesley Allen: http://www.wesleyallen.com/Twin_Beds/sparrow.php

    I think I like the Sparrow bed better, and I suspect it’s better made (more expensive also), but it only has one rail height as far as I can tell, and the Spring Garden has two heights, one more appropriate for a toddler. And I think I like the paint job on the Spring Garden better also. I need to find them in local stores and check them out in person before I make a decision.

    I’d go with the Pottery Barn Kids Allie Bed. That is perfect for me. Sandy’s idea of having a bed with a trundle is great too.

    When we redesigned my twin daughters’ room last year, a trundle bed seemed like a good idea. Check out charlesprogers.com… they have a good selection of both iron beds and trundle beds. We, however, ended up buying two separate wood beds. They may be twins but they have very different personalities and my husband wanted them to have their own personalized beds.
