Would you buy it?

While blog surfing this a.m. I came across this cool blog
www.junkernewbie.blogspot.com with a great idea!
She calls it "Would you buy it Wednesday", the premise being when you see something while thrifting but aren't sure whether or not you should buy/or should have bought it you can post the photo and get others opinions....kind of a virtual shopping trip with friends.

So while I was out thrifting with my dd I saw this old fold-up bed....I've always wanted one to put out on my back patio to just lounge on, fill with cool linens and pillows, etc.

My best friend encouraged me to go back and buy it....for her! So I did, what do you think? Would you buy one of these if you saw it? It's actually extremely comfortable and I love the fact that it adjusts in the back, so you can have it sitting up to read if need be.
I'm linking this post up to www.junkernewbie.blogspot.com to see what other people would do if they ran across an old fold up cot.
Then I'm off to continue work on my studio because the Where Women Create blog party will be here before you know it! Yikes!

Gail I don't know if I would have bought this or not. I think it is awesome but I'm so worried about 'bugs' right now I may have passed. still I think it looks very cool and I love how you can sit up on it. Glad you found this party...it's a lot of fun!

hugs, Linda

If I had a sun room or covered porch I definitely would have bought that. It is going to look fabulous covered in all sorts of fun linens!! And what a bonus that it adjusts and you can use it as a lounger!! Great purchase!

Oh, how fun, yes, I would buy it if it smelled okay. Fumigates sounds about right...it's too cute not to buy. I'm sure the men are thinking...ugh...what?

Oh my gosh! A perfect purchase, I have slept on one of those and they are very comfortable! I love it! karen...

I love it but I wouldn't have bought it because I have a thing about used mattresses...never know what has happened on them! and with all the recent hotel bedbug infestations...I would pass.

Gail said...

Just to let you all know, I too have a thing about used mattresses.
They actually "wig me out" just a bit. However, I've decided to purchase a zippered mattress protector so I won't have to worry about the mattress itself (or my bff Melanie won't have to), whichever of us ends up with this particular bed. I will let you know that I've enjoyed my entire afternoon curled up on it, reading to my dd, and just watching the clouds roll by. That's something you just don't notice as much when you're sitting in a chair! It's had a quilt covering it and some squishy comfy pillows....heaven!

Oh I love it...I would of bought it. But looked it over really good to make sure the mattress was in good shape and smelled ok...With a good cover over it and some old quilts and comfy pillows what a day dream heaven!!!

Erin said...

It is adorable! If I had a spot on a covered porch or sunroom I would have purchased it for sure!
