Today’s happy.

March 4, 2018

Today’s happy:
My childhood bed was a pretty 4 poster canopy bed. It was my mother’s dream bed that she had purchased for her daughters. When I was little I slept like a princess with my pink brocade canopy and bed spread.
As a young adult I got it back when mom and dad downsized and slept on it in my room. The canopy had broken over the years but it was still a lovely well made bed. I got a larger bed eventually and my niece used it for a few years and then I got it back.
When my daughter became older she used it as her first “big girl bed”. It’s been through the wringer! The posters were breaking and wood glue wasn’t working well. Haha
Recently she graduated to a more modern looking frame and here I was. Small house. Minimal storage. And no idea what to do with the bed.
So, I talked to my sister and we decided to let it go. We had feelings and sad. After grieving we moved on. I listed it for free on Facebook marketplace. Hoping someone would want a 4 poster full size bed for their little girl.
I was contacted by a woman who wanted it. She and her husband took unwanted bed frames and made benches. I asked how much and they told me and said if I wanted this, they’d give me a price break. ($50 total!!!)
They took it and upcycled it and painted it and returned it this morning. Two of the posters they kept natural and bored out a part for candle holders. The heart detail on the side was where my daughter had drawn a heart in pen on the side. They wood engraved it for memories.
My happy. So very happy.
