Besides, sleeping isn't the only thing that is done in bed!

I will be picking it up tonight!

Be careful, that fabric looks like dry clean only

I picked up the headboard this evening, from an ad placed on craigslist. I did not buy the entire bed, just the headboard...











This sucker is heavy! I am going to recover the panels, does anyone know what they might have originally looked like?

That headboard looks a million times better without that horrible fabric!

I've seen a lot of non-Tiki Witco with velvet fabric. But if you want to try to give this non-Tiki design a touch of Tiki, do faux leopard.

Funny story about the headboard...early yesterday morning, I sent tiki hammer an email of the pictures of the Witco headboard.

An hour or two later, the response back is "Are you out of your mind"?

Right there and then I know this isn't going to happen. Another hour passes and I get a call from her asking if I would like her to go with me to look at the headboard. I tell her that would be great (maybe not if she really didn't like it) and I also tell her the seller contacted me and told me she would be available between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m. tiki hammer said she would get off work early and pick me up so we could be there in time. I waited patiently until 5:45 and called to find out where she was at. She was just leaving work and had at least a half hour to drive home and another half hour to drive back. I started to panic because I thought we were going to be late and wasn't sure if anyone else was going over to look. tiki hammer said not to worry and to trust her. In the meantime, the seller calls (6:00 p.m.) to find out if I am on my way. I tell her "I am so glad you called, I might be closer to 7:00, since my wife just left work and is not home yet". The seller said to hurry, because there were other people coming to look.

tiki hammer comes home and lolly gags around the house for what seemed an eternity and finally says, o.k., I'm ready to go. I'm stressing the whole time. It also starts raining and we have a truck, but no tarps or cover.

We make it over there around 6:45 and the house is completely dark. I fumble for my cell phone while tiki hammer backs in the driveway (wondering why she is backing into the driveway of a dark house). Before I can dial the number, the seller comes walking over from across the street. She is selling off the stuff in the house for her neighbor.

We introduce ourselves and go into the house. The headboard, of course, is upstairs. We go in and I look at the headboard while tiki hammer and the seller are chit-chatting and I am not paying any attention to them. They continue their conversation and begin talking about work. "You seem familiar", "Haven't we met before"? Then they both burst out laughing and the gig is up. Ten minutes later I am loading this beast into the truck and we are on our way.

Turns out the seller, Jackie, works with tiki hammer. Yesterday when I replied to the ad, Jackie thought she recognized my name, but wasn't sure, so she went over to tiki hammer and asked her if this was me. Turns out tiki hammer had just opened my email and the pictures were up on her screen at the same time Jackie came over.

They both pulled a fast one on me.

Jackie mentioned she had about 10 people contact her about the headboard.

Someone even attempt to sabotage the sale by emailing her and telling her the headboard was "Witco" and she should be asking way more for it. Are people really that desperate??

Duke,

I was thinking the same thing. I already have a bedroom set that is faux cheetah.

Two other ideas come to mind as well; convert this over to a back bar or shelves for my tiki mugs. The headboard is 6 feet tall and 6 1/2 feet wide.

Yes, very cool photo shop wizardry, I had to blink! I like the mug shelf idea too, PTD, from that perspective the design gets an altar-like quality.
