July 7, 2011Our New Heywood Wakefield Bed
By Sara In AZ
Mike and I have wanted a Heywood Wakefield bed for a super long time. We have also wanted a king size bed for a super long time. As many of you know, they did not really make many Heywood beds to fit a king size mattress back then. We were kind of at a loss as to what to do, so we waited and waited and waited.
We really loved the StyleMaster king size bed the new Heywood Wakefield company manufactures, but we just could not afford to buy that bed right now.
So, we waited some more………………………………..
And then one day I found a listing on Craigslist for a Heywood Wakefield bed! It was magic I tell you! Pure magic!!!
Here is a scan from my Heywood Wakefield value guide showing the bed we found.
It is an M540 Double Utility Headboard w/Swing-Apart Twin Bed Frames. The double headboard comes with clamps from the factory, so you can use it either as a king headboard when it is clamped together or take it apart and use it as 2 twin headboards. We also have the original heavy duty bed frames that came with the bed.
I was pretty psyched to finally get my hands on a king size Heywood headboard! And here is our new bed y’all!
I already had some king size sheets that I picked up a while back – they were on super sale and I was hoping one day I’d be able to use them. Looks like that day finally came! I did not have a bedspread though. I was kind of at a loss as to what I should get. My Mom had some coupons for Kohl’s so I looked around and found this sweet little bedspread. I really like the green color and I thought the pattern that was woven in had a kinda old time-y feel to it.
The bed was in super good shape and I love the little storage areas in the headboards. I think it’s a keeper y’all!
Ahhhhhhh, I think it is time for a nap now………………………
