We went on the hunt for an antique bed, but the poor guy had no idea what he was getting himself into. After trekking through half a dozen shops, I rewarded him with a milkshake.
Sadly, the milkshake was the only purchase we made. We found only three bed options.
This brass bed was missing pieces and needed way too much work.
This spindle bed was in decent shape, but it didn't thrill me.
I really like the lines of this bed. It was only $60, but one of the rails was missing the hooks that attach it to the headboard. I'm not sure if that's an easy fix or not. Anyone have any experience with this?
I did find this guy that I thought would look cool hanging over the bed...
but my son thought it was too creepy.
So, the hunt continues, but I have a feeling I'll be on my own from here on out.
