Remember these vintage wicker headboards from the seventies?
I had one as a teenager. That one above to be exact.
My Mom brought it to me last summer to use in my guest room.
They came in a natural color when you bought them.
I painted mine white while I was still in high school.
But they are even better when painted a luscious color.
I saw a couple of these on Craigslist last fall.
They wanted like $25 for each.
I wanted them but I didn't need them...so I didn't go get them.
Someone got a great deal.
I wonder what color they ended up?
I really do love them in turquoise!
They are just right for a little girl's room.
Stunning in red.
This one reminds me of a peacock.
You can never go wrong with white.
Most of these probably only came in a double size.
Go ahead and use a double size headboard if you have a queen bed.
A queen is only 6 inches wider.
That means three inches on each side wider than a double size headboard.
My own headboard on my personal bed is a vintage wrought iron.
A double bed sized headboard looks just fine with my queen sized mattress.
Really it does so don't let having a queen size bed discourage you from buying a double size headboard.
They work well in a bohemian chic room.
So I've wondering why isn't anyone making new ones like these vintage ones?
Well, Land of Nod is -
This one is new from Land of Nod.
This whole room set up looks straight out of "Alice in Wonderland".
Their peacock shaped one is really nice.
My original one came Pier 1.
I wondered why Pier 1 doesn't do these again?
They are so fabulous aren't they?
So work is going well.
I'm meeting lots of nice people.
I finished my cabinet I was painting.
It turned out nice.
I'll take a photo the next time I'm home and have the right light.
I painted this in the living room and I had stuff everywhere while doing it.
I've vowed to myself not to tear up the living room again for a long long time.
Of course next on the list is to paint is the dining room which will involve me moving furniture
into the living room while I paint but maybe that won't be so bad.
I always think its not going to be too bad or take very long.
And it always turns out to be worse than I thought and take longer than I imagined.
Photos to come of furniture from the store soon.
I'm just not comfortable yet taking random photos of the merchandise.
But I'm sure I will that will change.
