We have been married for almost 10 years and we have never owned furniture for our room.
We finally have a "real" bedroom!
So, that is the dresser and mirror that we got at that really awesome Estate sale. When I saw this dresser I HAD to have it! It was the dresser I pictured for our room. I took the tag off of it so fast. I was a crazy Estate sale lady that day. There was a couple talking about the dresser and debating the purchase of it, but if you snooze you loose at Estate sales...sorry. I took that tag out from under their nose so fast. This was in the master bedroom. The bed had already sold. I was bummed, but happy to get the dresser of my dreams for a great price.
A couple of days later I checked Craigslist
for a bed. I was looking for the bed from the sale. I just knew a dealer had snatched it up. The first bed I looked at was "our" bed. I just knew it was the bed from the sale. I went and looked at it at a vintage shop on Hawthorne. It was the match! the color was the same, the trim was the same, and there were other things from the sale there. Sure, it was probably double in price, but to have the bed and dresser reunited again...priceless.
I was so happy we not only got a matching bed, but we got THE bed from the sale! I was so happy to keep the set together...I bet the original owner would be pleased.
Here is the headboard...
The lamp? Well, I bought it at Value Village about 3 years ago. It has been in our garage all this time. I have almost gotten rid of it many times, but I thought...one day I'll have the perfect spot for it.
Oh, there are big plans for the rest of our room. Such as...THIS QUILT
! I can't wait to get started on it! It may take me 10 more years just to finish the quilt, but it will be worth it.
