Since we were able to build and design our own home several years ago, such a room was in the plans for the space above our garage. I recently added another bed .. one discovered at a second hand store .. that I'm sure was under priced at only $80. It's probably made from brass tubing and sand cast iron seeing how the pieces fit together with the side rails. I primed it a rust color and added layers of oil rubbed bronze and a light spray of a metallic brown with a bit of the old brass color showing through to give it a well worn antique look.
A trip to the Hospice Thrift Store netted a mis-matched set of double sheets ... look at the great wide floral border on the top sheet ... ($4.50 for the sheets and pillow cases). The other bedding includes a king size white open weave blanket, an electric blanket, and floral coverlet with matching quilted shams, which were stored away and/or on the pop up trundle bed .. now stored underneath the daybed ..

The accent pillow and winter farm scene picture were also thrift store finds.
This bed will one day sport the quilt I'm putting together with squares pieced by my late grandmother.
Shopping second-hand and in the basement storage room made this new bed addition a thrifty find.
