Waking up in my new (old) bed knowing I'm in my own house.

The bed frame is cast iron, made in the late 1800's with the gold paint still on. I AM NOT going to refinish it. Was in the consignment shop when I saw it, it was "love at first sight". It was priced at $267.

Thumbs up

The welcoming sight of the small rambling white roses, (from next door's garden), growing over to my side.
Their alignment merges perfectly into my arbour red roses.

Sounds great, like something I would fall in love with too.

LOL! I wanted it when I saw it...it was mine when I saw the price.

I'm no longer allowed in that store without adult supervision...

Nothing like your own bed, under your own roof, with your own pillows. Well, the pillows are portable. Is the bed frame a plain, bent-pipe style, or one with curlicues and lots of decoration? A Random Photo when the camera is excavated, perhaps?

Our daughter has my parents' old bedroom set. I know Mom got it second-hand (I'm not sure, but I think it was HER parents' set) and refinished it when Dad was off fighting WWII. It's worn and a little chipped, but I'm glad Loverly loves it just the way it is.

Fancy! The shop owner was glad I didn't want to refinish it.

I currently have my eye on a china cabinet she has, it's huge! Made of cherry and a great buy at $359. You guys would love this store! The owner goes to estate sales and buys newer furniture from folks who want a change. I like the older stuff.

That sounds like a gorgeous bed, and a really great price, too. So does the cherry china cabinet! I'm needing another cabinet to display my grandmother's china - maybe I should make a trip to that little store in WY.

They sure made things to last back then.

Sounds like a dangerous place to be, PF. The china cabinet sounds like a steal! And it's a good thing you aren't going to paint all those curlicues, etc. What. A. Pain.

A long-ago friend of mine was moving from OH to NY and was getting rid of a number of her things. I got a great deal on her antique 6-piece barristers' cabinet - four book units plus a base and cap. One of my best steals, and Kim thought she got a good price too. Win-win!
