A New Bed!

Check out the new guest bed I snagged for ...get this... $50 on craigslist!!

Yes, it needs a little work, but overall, I thought it was a great deal!
We finally upgraded the 20 year old mattress we're sleeping on to a W Hotel bed (I'll let you know what we think of it when it gets here), so the old one moves to the guest room. I'm still undecided about what I'm going to do with it- definitely needs a refinishing job.

I might go the boring route and refinish it with the original stain color, but what I love about this piece is strictly the structure & shape- that curved footboard is awesome! Come spring, we're refinishing the floor in there & staining it darker- I'm a little worried it might be too much wood (there are also wood built-ins that I'm much more reluctant to paint). So plan B is to paint the trim all bright white and the panels a bold, bright color. It might be just the breath of life & energy this bed is begging for! We'll see though...

Oh, I love it! I came to the "Cave" from Apartment Therapy and stayed because you're fellow 'Burghers. :) Keep up the good work!
(PS- I have a special place in my heart for a impish doxie. :) )

Wow, this is really a great find. So unique. You just can't do better than the old stuff, in my opinion.
