A couple of weeks ago I hinted to you in this post that I had bought something vintage, red and metal.
I said it was bigger than a breadbox and asked if you had any guesses as to what it might be.
You all came up with some great guesses but nobody actually figured it out.
So what could it be?
How about an adorable vintage red metal bed?
I saw this in Ruby Grace's "red booth" at Lonestar Antique Mall.
Denis who owns the booth along with two other really cool booths
let me have it for such a great deal that I couldn't say no.
That cute bed was just begging me to give it a good home.
When I made over my sunroom into a project room,
I had this great bench in there for seating.
Then I decided to move that bench to the front porch
and when I did, I decided this was where it belonged.
Moving that bench to the porch created the cutest seating area but
left a huge void in the sunroom.
Enter cute vintage metal red bed.
It's going to be my new daybed/lounging sofa.
It has remnants of a sweet floral decal on the headboard
and awesome little wheels.
Those 3 little pots need some greenery, huh?
I added some bedding and pillows
and a comfy cotton throw
and presto, a daybed.
I am not a formal person. I love the comfy slightly disheveled look.
What a great place for friends to hang out in the sunroom.
I guess it wouldn't be such a bad place to take a nap (if I took naps)
or even let a guest use if we need an extra bed.
Maybe I will go take a nap. There's not much else we can do down here
in Texas right now. We've had 3 straight weeks of 100+ temperatures,
ridiculous humidity and not a drop of rain. When you step outside,
you immediately start sweating...even before you feel really hot.
Hope others experiencing this heat wave are staying cool!
