Dreaming of a Four Post Bed

Remember my headboard that I purchased for our previous apartment.  I had it shipped out from Florida but I didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for shipping so it took months for them to ship it out.  I loved the headboard and it served me really well in our previous apartment…

Our Old Apartment Bedroom

It was perfect there but it just doesn’t work in our current apartment.  We have really tall ceilings, like 14 ft. ceilings and I want something that speaks to the height.  The Faux Bamboo headboard is a low profile, which worked great for our previous apartment’s 8 ft. ceilings.  What to do?  Sell this one and purchase a canopy bed off of Craigslist, of course.  I already have my eye on one but I’ve promised Graham that I would sell this one first.  Any takers?  She’s a beaut.  Queen size.  E-mail me if interested and you live in the bay area…kate@katecollinsinteriors.com

Why canopy or 4 poster bed?  Well, because it will show off the fabulous height of the bedroom.  And because I’m feeling inspired but what others have done with a four poster bed…

Ideally, I would find a pencil post bed just like this on Craigslist –

I probably love this look so much because I grew up with two twin antique pencil post beds in my bedroom; they are identical to the bed shown above.  They are very special bed frames because my mom and her sister actually used them when they were kids as well.  I distinctly remember jumping on the beds as a kid with friends and one of the beds slats broke.  My mom was furious and she rarely got upset.  It was all fixed but now I so get it.  Sorry, mom. 🙂

    Don’t give up hope. I kept looking and found mine (twin) on CL’s for $100.
