I went to an antique fair with my mother and sister over the weekend, and wasn't having a tremendous amount of luck. I'd found a couple things, but nothing I was REALLY excited about. My mouth was aching (from getting my wisdom teeth out last week), we were getting hot, and overall, we were just ready to go. But I kept saying, "I just want to find one thing that's really exciting, so that I feel like it was worth coming!" (the fair was two hours away). And then, in the distance, two booths up, I saw these:
They were sitting on a table, amidst bunches of other non-dolly stuff (who knows what else, as my eyes only saw them), kind of glowing there just for me, you know?
I raced up to the table, thinking in my mind, "I'm sure they're at least $80- I couldn't possibly be lucky enough to get a cheap price." I looked at the tag. $35! I casually asked, "Would you go any cheaper on the bunk beds?", knowing in my mind that $35 was already a great deal. "Yeah, I'd take $30", she said. And I said, "Sold!"
Then I went back and found my mom and sister, and told them we could go home!
Hurray! I've eyed these bunk beds on numerous occasions on Ebay, but they were always too expensive.
I came home and promptly made some bedding out of an old cutter quilt that I've got. It turned out so cute!
However, after trying to find a place to
squeeze fit the beds into my studio, I am forced to decided to use them to store vintage sheets and larger fabric pieces, so I only need bedding for the top bunk for now!
I am working on an updated studio tour for you. I hope to have it done sometime this week!
