princess and the pea bed


Its finally finished. I think I started this project about two years ago. Maybe more… nah… whatever. Ages ago.

It sat on top of the wardrobe in the office, a wire bed without a base and without mattresses… But the idea was there. A very tall bed, with a stack of mattresses, fit for a princess.


It was finally time to finish it. I had to put wire on the base to hold the mattresses, then I had to make the mattresses. It wasn’t difficult, just fiddly. I had scraps of fabric and batting, I made up a small pattern to fit the bed and got making.



Its a bit wonky but that’s part of the charm, its all hand made without jigs or anything.

I love working with wire, I’ve made a few beds, cups, a teapot and other stuff, but this is the first TALL bed I’ve made. What fun.

Sorry for the pics, Its really hard to photograph wire items!

  1. This is so sweet. Where is the pea, though? Gotta have a pea!!! Sometimes, I feel like I’m that princess. There will be a tiny something that I’m laying on, and I practically tear the bed apart finding that “pea”! This is such a pretty object.


  2. Thanks guys. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I’ll be taking it to the Etsy Makers Market in November. Hopefully someone will get it as a Christmas present! πŸ™‚
