Vintage Daybed Finally In Da House

It takes time to furnish a home. This bed has been in my family for generations, from the farm where my father grew up.

Now it's turned daybed in the corner of the livingroom that we finally sorted out. It's become our favourite hang out place, the kids like it so much they get up way too early in the weekends to watch tv and relax.

I had to sell my beloved 60s teak cabinet, cause you can't have all the vintage furniture you want when you live in a democracy (or in a relationship).

Bolia shelves (we love the system Cell) on the wall, and the tv too. And my favourite West German vase of course!

Our art needs to come up, but that may take another year. I'll keep you posted.

Have a good week!

The little day bed is adorable and only made more beautiful by its history. I've been in my apartment 2 years and still only have 2 pictures on the wall!

What a beautiful bed. It's wonderful that you have kept it in the family. I would call it "heirloom" or "heritage" and not just vintage!

Sorry about your cabinet. I laughed at your explanation about living in a democracy. Did the vintage police come knocking at your door and accuse you of hoarding?

Yes, I feel like a very big woman - letting go of something I wanted to keep. But you see, if I wanted to bring in this bed....The sacrifies you make in a relationship: so the vintage police (aka Arctic Dad) keeps me from hoarding:)
