Freebie Friday: Headboard

freebie headboard

Part of my downsizing initiative is to get rid of furnishings that, for one reason or another, just didn’t work. For example, we had an old art deco veneered headboard and footboard on our bed that never quite meshed with our more industrial side tables and wardrobe. So I sold them before Christmas. But I really missed having a headboard. A neighbour was selling an ebonized sleighbed-style set but I couldn’t afford it. I guess her new tenants didn’t want it either and put it out on the curb.

Nothing is totally free. I had to carry it down the street on the coldest day of the year and I’d lost my gloves. Luckily Mr. Andrew was coming home at the same time to help bring it home. I love the shape — it’s perfect for when you’re sitting up reading in bed!
