Well no hand grenades and only one headboard. Last week we went to our favorite auction house and picked up this headboard with two sideboards attached. After some furious bidding and thanks to my acumen as a quick bidder we got the headboard for about 1/3 of what we were willing to pay for it. So we were extremely happy. So here are a few snaps of the new acquisition - probably more pictures of a headboard than you'd ever want but we were pleased. The bedroom is progressing well - the walls are painted and now we are starting to accessorize. We still don't know what we are going to do with the plaster corner sconces but, I am sure we will come up with something.
And I've included a couple of pics of a BBQ joint we found that we really like.
