New Orleans Queen Bed
New Orleans Inspired Queen Bed made from Doors and Reclaimed Wood. This handmade queen bed is crafted from reclaimed antique wood found that was once part of New Orleans homes flooded in Hurricane Katrina. The headboard and footboard are made from two salvaged doors.
Much of this wood came from a flooded home in the 7th Ward neighborhood of New Orleans. This area took on nearly 5-7 feet of water and remained submerged for almost two weeks. In making this bed I wanted to preserve the history and beauty of these old pieces. On the side rails and posts, I’ve embraced the termite holes, accentuated the cracks and nail holes.
They’ve been dried, refinished, sanded and polished, but still have a distressed look that only Hurricane Katrina could do. The panels of the headboard have been inlaid with a decorative Victorian ceiling tin pressed in Laredo, Texas during the 1920s. The blue and gold tones of these tins pair beautifully with the dark rich colors of the wood.
Each bed is custom made to order. I will work with you to determine the appropriate size, color, and pattern of each piece. I also carry a variety of different tin patterns. All beds require assembly and come with the hardware needed.
