Oh Ye of Little Faith...or Look Ma, It Fits!

Just thought you deserved to see it IN the car. Under the blankets is the headboard I found on CL while there ($25 final price).

Currently the sofa is sitting in the living room. It has the bolt of fabric sitting on it playing dress up. I need to get that made asap. (I went green).

Nice fit. Was the wine included? Hope we see everything when it is set up.

Transportation is always a problem for me when buying bargains. My Accord has an enormous trunk but I need the height of an SUV.

The story behind the headboard:

Before leaving town, I found someone selling an entire set of Henry Link Bali Hai bedroom furniture, no headboard. FOR $100 !!!!!! I plan on painting it (maybe) a dark blue and painting the hardware too--maybe an aged brass color.

So, while in Greenville, I was on CL, well, I was looking at CL and I found this headboard. Gal was selling it for $30. I looked around the web. Hmmm, this particular unmarked headboard is selling on the web for some moolah. (One Kings Lane included). We met with her, I said "You are asking $30", she immediately said "I'll take $25". DH is a quick study, he immediately whipped open the wallet and paid.

So, here is my hideously ugly yellow headboard, with cat pawprint in the paint included

The bolt of fabric is sitting on the piece, with 2 pillows working as place holders. I want large pillows on it. (have you noticed that pillows are bigger now on sofas? Anybody?)

Under the green fabric, I have 2 throw pillows to help it look like a cushion, lol. You have to have imagination to live here.

From one Craigslist 'gal' to another, that is one hel* of a haul!
Both before the trip and during. Show us the Henry Link pieces? Are they for you? CL is wonderful!!!!

I love faux bamboo and weeks ago put a bit of great green paint similar to your fabric color on one of my CL faux bamboo chairs. I matched the lighter green in the fabric I'm planning to use, Thibaut's Providence in raspberry.

Good job! I love Henry link furniture. I found an awesome Henry Link desk in a goodwill in Florida paid 25.00 for it. I had my sister practically sitting on it will I texted my hubby a picture. Lol!

my3dogs--I don't have them yet. They are "mine" though. Long story...seller expecting baby yesterday, older daughter who is using the HL furniture is getting Gradmom's current furniture, but her house is for sale and they don't want to have an empty room....I have no problem letting the little girl keep her furniture for another week.

I don't have any pics, he took the listing down. But here is a picture of the same dresser painted blue from my Pinterest board!

The set I'm getting is this dresser, the mirror, 2 nightstands, and the desk

I saw 2 Pinterest boards last night with Henry Link - yours must have been one of them. I cannot BELIEVE what a HUGE bargain you got on that set. The ways I saw them re-done were just gorgeous!

Love the sofa! What a graceful shape it has! (Like the rug it's sitting on, too) And the bedroom set, are you going to paint it a similar color from your pinterest pic? It'll look amazing.

You are a scorer-extraordinaire!
