I found this Broyhill British Empire bed on craigslist TWICE in my area (weird, right?) I missed the first one and negotiated for a while one the second one. It's good I didn't see the bed BEFORE I negotiated or I would probably just have paid the full asking price!

|Headboard - sigh!|
|Pineapples - one of the things that totally convinced |
me no other bed would do
|Looking good beside it my black and white french chest (freebie)|
also my little flag step stool made my Dad, painted by Mom
I need it to get IN the bed because it's so tall, we may be shopping for a
low profile box springs in the near future

I call this my NOT project because I didn't have to work on the bed except for finding it and negotiating the price. The work was getting it home and of course my hero SuperDave did that for me. I helped with the assembly and it was quick and easy.
So what do you think? Ready for the price? I paid $300 for this amazing solid wood carved four poster! I am VERY happy with my latest craigslist purchase.
Much Love & Laughter,
