Meredith sent in a good question: Several years ago I purchased a gorgeous wrought iron bed from Room & Board. It's the Augusta bed- but they don't make it anymore. It has an elaborate, detailed rounded headboard similar to their current Taylor bed- but without the knobs on the corners. Lately though, I've been wishing I had gone with something more contemporary- like their current Ella bed....

Unfortunately, my bed was so expensive (for me at least) that I don't feel I can get rid of it and buy a different one. Do you know of any DIY projects or site or blogs or anything that give directions on how to slip cover a wrought iron bed or change the look to be more contemporary with clean lines?

Any info you can post or pass along would be hugely much appreciated!

Thanks so much!

Please share any ideas or suggestions with Meredith on possible slipcover DIY's for her bed?
