I love these beds. I wish my photo had turned out a little better. The beds are painted in charcoal black and shabbied back a fair amount with a good sanding. They have been recovered in black and white mattress ticking. Now they have a French country cottage feel. Of course in the shop they are not set up with their side rails as we need to save floor space to accommodate many items. Later this week, I will show you these beds in a black and white vignette that is absolutely stunning.
