You may recall that I was looking for bedroom decorating inspiration awhile back. Well, we ended up buying a new house that same month, rendering that particular problem moot. Now that we’ve moved, it turns out that the main issue is the the bed itself, a modern canopy that we purchased two years ago from West Elm. (We bought a king, but only the twin version is still available.) We still love how it looks, but from the beginning the sound the bed made was an issue. After, say, a night or two of sleep in the bed, the screws would loosen up and the bed would make an echoing clanking noise at the slightest movement.
So here are my questions:
1) Does anyone else have the West Elm metal canopy bed, and the same sound issues? If so, have you come up with any solutions?
2) We’re leaning toward selling the canopy bed and getting a simpler, mid-century modern-style, king-size platform bed. Any suggestions that cost under $1,000? — Mary T.
