There is a thrift store across the plaza from where we get our dog groomed and for the last two years I’ve been meaning to pop in. I finally got around to it this month and oh boy did I score!
$5 people. That is a real score.
This style of head board is often referred to as a Peacock head board, in all its wicker glory. So bohemian. A fine vintage specimen and at that price I could not leave it for a second. I rushed up to the counter and asked the sweet old lady to hold it for me while I ran home to get my wallet (she really didn’t understand my excitement). Clearly they weren’t aware of how much these retail for!
I think the natural wicker look is beautiful and combined with modern block print fabrics. They are also very cute sprayed in a bright cheerful colour. Or classic white. So many possibilities.
Growing up, I actually had a wicker head board (similar to the white one above). I used to snap the scrolls off while laying in bed! Ha. I never would have guessed I’d be so happy to see one again.
I’m so eager to design a little girl’s room using the vintage head board I found. Contact me if you’re interested!
