As many of you know, I have a fascination with Steampunk. It doesn’t extend to me wearing pseudo-Victorian garb with goggles while pretending to captain a zeppelin. But it does involve me loving the overwrought, anachronistic esthetic of machinery.
Because it’s autumn and because I just got back from London and because I needed a change… I decided to Steampunk my bed.
As you may recall, this is the bed I had painted an aquamarine blue at one point. Well, now it’s an aged copper metallic. And I’ve added some copper piping and brass fittings. And one pressure gauge.
This is just phase one. I will be adding some hoses and I’m also thinking of adding a brass screen detail to the headboard– something like this:
I’ll also add some sort of brass vents (possibly round) to the bottom platform area and hopefully some barometer/temperature/humidity gauges at some point.
At the very least, the color of this bed goes better with my room and overall decor and it gives me a bit of change. Plus the bed becomes more even more unique.
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
