If you're a seeker or picker of fine mercantile like me, you are willing to wait for that piece you need for your home, not totally necessary, but sure would be nice to have, or you didn't even know you needed it. :) We die hard treasure hunters, vintage lovers, thrifters, and flea market aficionados, will stop at every little interesting place we see on our travels, in hopes of finding something special that makes our home unique and reflects our personality. If you're looking for instant gratification, don't expect to find it when you run out looking tomorrow. That's what big box stores are for. But, but.....trust me, eventually, with patience, you will find it and it will be perfect and you will love it.
Exactly one year ago, I penned a post about the mishap with our silk and linen fabric headboard and the fix was to cover it with "love", a heart to cover up the "oops". That post is here.
Ever since then, I have been on the lookout for a new head board, not actively looking, but always in the back of my mind. And then........just a few days before Christmas, I ran into a new consignment shop near my home. And there it was...... leaning against the window. I took measurements, rushed home, took more measurements, rushed back ..... and bought it.
The first thing Bobby G. said was, "we are going to paint this, right?" :)
It had such a French look to it......thick wood, carved flowers and flourishes, curves, caning, shabby and worn, and a simple creamy color..... I was in LOVE
His n' Hers are thrilled........cost $75.00.
So...if you need something, be patient, keep a list, and keep looking.....it's out there. :)
