Thrifty Thursday #57

So my Spring cold turned out to be strep throat! Blah. So lots of rest and some antibiotics later, I am feeling a little less like a pile of manure.

Thrifty Thursday

This week I only have one thing to show you….although it’s a pretty awesome one this! Check out this four poster bed!!!

Isn’t it a beauty? I had been planning to buy a guest bed when we move in a few months, although I figured that it would have to be something that whipped up to avoid spending too much money. I wasn’t expecting to find such a great deal on such a beautiful piece! It took some deciding on my part but priced at just $50 I had to grab it up! Part of the bed has been stripped and the other has not, I will have to decide what I want to do to it.

Would you have snatched it up? What would you do to spruce up the piece?

Linking up to these great link parties!!!


The Time to Shine link party is OPEN and I would just LOVE it if you would come link up!

I also linked my round up of DIY Mother’s Day Gift ideas. Get on those last minute gifts, Mother’s day is SUNDAY!!!


  1. LOVE the bed! It’s beautiful 🙂 I’ve been looking for a bed for my guest room as well, and since this one is absolutely fabulous, I definitely would have snatched it up as well! Personally, I would strip it down to wood and stain it. Wood is timeless and lovely 🙂 Great score!

    OH boy would I have grabbed it up, the bed is so nice. Lucky you. I passed up a real cute single bed at thrift store few weeks ago for $20 and could kick myself. I’d have left the mattress and just taken the headboard/footboard but they wouldn’t let it go that way. It was so cute to make a bench with but I didn’t have the money. Ah well better luck next time.

  3. Beautiful,I would Strip the other half and stain.The wood that has been striped looks good.Don’t use a dark stain.Good luck with it what ever you do.

  4. That is beautiful. I love antiques, never thought I would but as I have become one myself….I like them more…lol

  5. What a gorgeous bed and a great deal! Thanks so much for sharing at Project Inspired! Hope to see you at tonight’s party 8 pm EST!
