Happy Sunday To Ya's....Anybody Looking For A Nice Franklin Shockey Bedroom Set? Status: Knotty Pine + Vintage Modern!

This nice (enough!) bedroom set just popped up on craigslist. I'd go get it myself but just don't have the room! I really like the style though. Almost enough too sell my Brasilia 5 drawer Dresser and replace it with this.

There's even a "Dogbone" style footboard for the Bookcase headboard...unfortunately it's a Full size. I have no need for a full size bed. Too bad, that.

And if the full size bed - that otherwise is AWESOME(!!!) - wasn't enough to drive me nuts, there's only a single nightstand. Fine...if you're sleeping alone. No No NO...not even then! I have to have a matched pair!

Here's the link to the craigslist ad. Sorry if it's already deleted...gotta strike while the iron's hot!  Let me know if you happen to snatch this set up.  I'm really very smitten with the vintage modern style crossed with the knotty pine construction.

  1. I've never seen that set before. It's killing my knotty pine loving heart to live so far away.

    1. Hi EK. Google "Franklin Shockey" and look through the Image results to see much better pictures of how lovely this stuff is!

  2. It never ceases to amaze me that people post pictures like that on Craigslist...crap all over the furniture, unmade bed, trash on the floor. Jeeeeze...

    1. Hi Dana. You mean that Reese's Peanut Butter Cup wrapper? That just made me hungry...is it kind gross to say that? Actually, I didn't even notice the garbage and stuff until you said something! I was too starry eyed over that spectacular set.

  3. It appears they have no bites as it's still up when I checked. If I was in the neighborhood I would have definetely gone to take a look and likely picked. The price looks very reasonable to resell even with the full size bed. I had a F/S desk awhile back that didn't last very long and I really like the lines of this set. And yes, what is it about either lack of pics or some like this that certainly don't help with the sale. I'm with you Dana on this particular annoyance! Although sometimes these turn out to be some of the best picks!

    1. Hi A Mod. It was recently "bumped" up the list AND another seller has listed another similar set but at a higher price. At first I thought the second set was a flip of the first set but then I saw the relisted first set.

  4. Whoa...I just stumbled across this on CL Chicago. It's the second set I've seen in as many days! $75 for each piece in Chicago: http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/atq/3060031062.html

    1. Hi Diana. I missed it. By the time I looked at the web address the listing was gone. What was it?
