It’s time for another installment of affordable Anthropologie inspired ideas, and today, let’s take a peek at their wanderlust beds that one could easily DIY. The best part is that while these Anthropologie beds are crafted to look worn and upcycled, I believe it’s far more rewarding, personalized, and unique to find pieces to repurpose. Enjoy!
The Marigold Bed may have rosettes as accents, but it also sports a price tag of $1000 – $1500. I always see brass or metal beds on Craigslist that have the same shape, but only cost anywhere from $50 – $150. Even the older true brass beds on eBay have buy-it-nows of only $500. With a can of spray paint, you can enjoy your own version in whatever hue suits your bedroom best. The money you save could be spent on luxury beds from Silentnight!
When I was visiting Detroit last year, I saw heaps and heaps of cogs from abandoned factories that could be nearly identical to Anthropologie’s Hushed Hours Bed. You can also find old factory cogs at various antique fairs across the country, and I have a feeling it won’t set you back $2500!
Now this bed is what lovely dreams frolicking through the forest are made of! Be on the lookout as I replicate the Forest Canopy Bed look with real fallen trees from a forest nearby my home (and perhaps coaxing a Hawaiian wedding flower plant’s real vines to embrace the branches…imagine the sweet smell lulling one to sleep) — and the price tag will be free, rather than $5500!
Why buy a Gate Headboard for $1500 when you can use the real thing? Visit your nearest Restore, architectural salvage, or even the “free” or “materials” section of Craigslist to find a real gate to use. Find out more
