both our kids have shaker-style wooden furniture, one in cherry, one in pecan.

i like the shaker look because it can't get dated. all you have to do is change the style of bedding and you can give the room a different look.

my husband and i have a classic shaker king head/footboard. even though it's beautiful wood, i'm really not feeling it anymore. i want to change our bed to just a wrought iron headboard, no footboard. we'd still keep our mattress and springs and also the dresser and chest because the knobs are worn metal and would match the kind of wrought iron i'm hoping for.

^^ this is most like what our kids' beds look like, only one is in cherry and the other is pecan.
