Favorite Farmhouse Beds

Farmhouse style furniture is so fun to pick out, and my favorite part yet of furnishing our farmhouse has been the search for beautiful farmhouse beds. For our three bedrooms, we settled on three very different styles of farmhouse beds: spindle, metal & wooden cannonball. (Note: this post contains affiliate links to products I love ♥)

Farmhouse Spindle Beds

My all time favorite type of bed is the spindle bed. They are also known as Jenny Lind beds, named after the Swedish opera singer who toured the United States in the mid-1800s. Products from clothing to tobacco to pianos were named after her as part of the marketing campaign for her cross country tour with P.T. Barnum, and spindle beds soared in popularity under her name. Still produced today, these gorgeous beds come in designs ranging from elegant to whimsical.

New spindle beds can be found in toddler size to king size, but the antique versions are difficult to find in today’s standard sizes. Our vintage Jenny Lind bed is 7 x 2 feet, and it makes for a perfect little reading spot in our spare bedroom.

Metal Farmhouse Beds

Metal farmhouse beds have such a classic look and are very easy to find these days. A metal farmhouse bed was big on my wishlist for our guest bedroom, and I’m so glad we found one! I was worried at first if metal beds were sturdy, but fear not! They are plenty sturdy!

We opted for a plain black metal bed and added some glitz by spray painting the knobs and feet gold. It definitely adds a lot of charm to our farmhouse bedroom!

Wooden Farmhouse Beds

The wooden cannonball bed in our bedroom is one of my favorite pieces in our home. My grandparents purchased it right after they were married, and it spent almost half a century in their bedroom under an antique painting of my great great grandfather. I had always admired it, but I never told them how much I loved it. When my grandpa passed away a few years ago, my grandma decided to get a smaller bed and asked if I’d like to take the old cannonball bed. It was such a surprise, and I’m honored to take care of it!

    I love them all and if I had enough bedrooms in our house I’d have one of each! ;) Right now my husband is building our bed. I fell in love with the Pottery Barn Farmhouse bed frame and found a site with plans to build your own. I can’t wait for it to be finished (and our room painted!) so I can add more farmhouse touches. :)

    Oh goodness, the beauty. I could talk about decorating for hours. I’ve recently hoped aboard the farm house loving bandwagon thanks to fixer upper. I’ve always loved old styled homes with modern touches. I honestly can’t decide my favorite bed out of the ones you listed. I love it all!!! Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve always lived the Jenny Lind beds and I LOVE that color on yours — what a cute room! I’ve always wanted to live in a farmhouse but alas, I’ve a ranch in the suburbs lol. We did get an iron repro bed for our little guest room that I love. We have an old mahogany bed in our room that I got for 25.00 25 years ago!

    Beautiful collection of beds! I especially liked seeing the cannonball style because my grandparents had a set of twin beds in that style. Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Janet

    Love your collection here. Each farmhouse bed has its own style but the blue single one is so adorable, is it for kids, right? It’ll be hard for me to pick one in case of choosing one to buy. Maybe a metal one is perfect for me. Thanks for your post.
