~AMAZING Antique French Day Bed FIND~

One of my FAV finds~Antique French Day Bed~ C*h*i*p*p*y Blue IRON~Scrolly~OMG~to die for!  I was lucky enough to find two~one for you and one for me!  Being a huge garden fan...I don't want to put mine in the house...I want mine out in the garden...
This sweet French bed ~becomes a  garden seat when you fold the side down~I had to show you how I would style it...of course with my Jeanne d' Arc Summer Magazine, some Hydrangea's from my garden and a vintage bark cloth pillow made from my friend Zoe~
Available at American Home & Garden in Ventura Ca.  
I'm having a beautiful white ruffled cushion custom made for this piece...3" thick foam rubber, zippered, washable, white ruffled~
Available today~cushion should be in the store by the weekend~
I can hardly wait to place my new bed in the garden~ (photos to follow) Update SOLD!

  1. oh...I love this daybed and it will look beautiful out in your garden. I keep kicking myself for passing one up a couple years ago and have been looking ever since to put in my daughter's room.

    Hope you are enjoying Summer my friend:-)


  2. I want this bed!! so pretty!!

  3. Such a beautiful bed, Kathee! Can't wait to see it with the custom cushion. Is Zoe the same Zoe that used to sell beautiful custom pieces at Casa Preciosa on eBay? I LOVED that shop!

    By the way, there's only one more day to enter my "French-inspired" giveaway. Hurry on over. ;)
