Heywood Wakefield Dogbone Bed

At last it is done.

We finally got our Heywood Wakefield bed done. I restored it a while ago but it took some time to sell our old one. We are really happy with the way it turned out. The finish has that usual warm glow like caramel.

This is what Mel and I love about this style HW bed. We love the cut out in the foot board. It is basically a larger version of the back rest on the HW dog bone chair (M154).

We love this bed! It sits lower to the ground which is nice compared to what we had before. We have been on the hunt for cool vintage chenille bedspreads. We found this simple but cool “popcorn” chenille spread that is this soft pink color. We have been hunting for really cool peacock or flamingo bedspreads but have not found one we like yet.

Mel’s mom made these pillows out of some cool barkcloth fabric we found online. She did a great job!

You might have noticed the Dahlberg AM radio above the headboard. I got it back from Luis over at Stereoadvisor last week and it works great. I had to make a wall stand for it to mount to. I can just imagine having the pillow speaker under your pillow listening to Perry Como or Bing Crosby crooning you to sleep.

It looks right at home just hanging above the bed, I wonder the last time it was in that position….years and years I bet.

I think it all ties together and looks marvelous. We are soo happy with how it has all turned out.

We hope you all like it too! If anyone out there has any really cool chenille they want to sell let us know!
