Day.......Bed.......That's What I'm Talkin' 'Bout! I Do Loves Me Some Nappin' After An Early Morning Estate Sale! Status: Pull My Trundle.
This was an unexpected purchase Saturday afternoon. We had hit a few estate sales already that morning but our friend Illuminate had texted me that we Must come check out the big "mid century" estate auction that she had been at since mid morning. I'm still stinging from the previous Thursday auction so I was hesitant but decided to just stop by to hang out.
I didn't even bother to get a number to bid with. I was not going to get suckered into
another auction. But then Illuminate said I could just use her number if I wanted to bid

It's not just a nice Danish style daybed but it also has a trundle pull out secondary that makes
it a queen size guest bed! Talk about handy! Got a spare bedroom that you're using as an
office? Stick this bad boy in there and suddenly you've got a Guest Bedroom / Office that's
ready for your friends to pass out in next time they come by and drink all your beer! You
like? Come and get it! It's available now on my craigslist ads.
