I have a thing for vintage beds…I love them. I don’t know if it’s because they are so stately or because they display quilts so nicely. Regardless, I love them.
Sunday Hubby went to an auction and bought one. Now that the kids are gone and aren’t going to cover good furniture with stickers or spill finger nail polish on them, gradually, we are on the lookout for beautiful beds to put them kids’ old rooms. Here was his find.
This one is walnut…the bed in our bedroom is Victorian walnut too. We had thought we had thought our next bed would be oak as it is much easier to find a matching dresser but, this one called and we answered.
Hubby will do a little work to make it fit a full sized bed frame rather than the 3/4 size. He also has to do a little repair on the burl that goes across the top of the foot board. There’s a ding that needs a little work too but all in all, $160 wasn’t a bad price. He’ll get entertainment from fixing it plus we get to actually use it!
We chuckled…he fixes the bed…I make the quilts. It’s a win-win for us both.
Our daughter, Kalissa, who just graduated and will be moving out, wasn’t quite so sure she liked the idea of us buying a new bed. The bed will be going in her bedroom and that means, her room, won’t be her room anymore. It will be the guest room… it’s all part of the growing pains.
