thrift store score

This past Friday, Travis and I checked out another thrift store, Park Avenue Thrift, that we came across in town.  It was a complete bust, so we decided to head over to our favorite thrift store, Hope Outreach, to see if they got in any new treasures that called out to us.  Nothing caught our eyes at first...until we turned the corner to the furniture section.  There it was.  A chunky, wood, full sized bed frame - perfect for the guest room!  And the price?  $24.96.  Uhm, yes, I'll be taking that home with me, thank you.

Eventually, (when we have the space, not to mention the time) the bed will get a good sanding and a fresh coat of paint (color yet to be determined), but for now, a good cleaning will suffice.  After all, dents, dings, and scratches add character.  At least that's my motto

it's kind of bland against the "apartment white" walls, but we're working with what we've got right now

new guest bedding, at least new throw pillows, are on my list of things "to-do"

The only "thing" about this bed is that it does not require the box spring - another thing we have to find a place for in storage.  Joy.  But we think this bed is totally cute and well worth the $25ish we paid for it.  What do you think?  What's that?  You want to know if it's comfy?  Well, you'll have to come find out for yourselves ;)


  1. It's cool. I might sleep there soon.
    Question. Who moved the book case?

  2. That is and awesome chunky headboard and footboard! Very cool! Definitely dig the slightly beat up feel to it :)

  3. I love the bed! I'm totally impressed that you got it for so cheap!

  4. OHMYGOSH...cuh-RAZY deal! That's awesome! I love it. :)
