Well, they’re not really new.
But they’re new to Vivi.
And I think they’re so sweet.
I’ve been searching for just the right set of twin beds for Vivi’s room. Since
forever last fall. We thought we’d found some at a local antique dealer, but Chris wasn’t happy with the way they fit (or didn’t fit) together.
When considering furniture for our merry crew, beautiful is great. But sturdy is essential.
So we waited. And looked.
I found these a few weeks ago on cr@igslist and contacted the seller about them. Even though, at $1000 for the pair, they were out of our budget.
She said that she’d be willing to take $800 for both, and although I thought they were priced fairly at that since they’re bird’s eye maple from the 30’s, I just didn’t want to spend that much.
So I waited. Again.
I contacted her last weekend to see if she still had them. And if she’d take $600 for the pair.
She said yes.
Chris drove down to Boston over the weekend and picked them up. And Vivi loves them.
Next hurdle will be actually get her in one of them and in her room. And out of her toddler bed in our room.
Small steps. Small steps.
