When a very light gauge iron bed is converted to a canopy it becomes so much more impressive than when it was just a simple bed with head and footboard in their natural configuration.If you go one step further and make the top canopy poles curved up to a central casting, a traditional bed all of a sudden takes on a “fairytale” appearance. In this photo we just wanted to show the bed, “Before & After” the conversion process. But when the side poles and canopy top poles are draped with fabric, it takes on an entire “Princess” effect.
There are a number of different canopy tops that we do here at Cathouse……the Straight Canopy………the “Crown Canopy” where the poles curve upwards toward a round center hoop……….and the Princess Canopy as you see here. Any of our antique iron beds can be converted to a canopy. Even ones that have rounded shoulders or French Curve sides.
So if you’re considering an iron bed for yourself or child’s room…..consider a canopy conversion………they become way more impressive.
