OK, so I didn't go thrifting today as planned, but my oh my do I have some goodies !!! Awhile back my hubby's gramma died and we rented a truck and got all the leftover stuff nobody wanted because they thought it was just junk that was in Gramma's attic...HELLO, if it's been in Gramma's attic for 75 years then I probably want it, right ? I mean Gramma was 95 years old and a pack rat !!! Well, I knew we got a dining room set, bedroom set and a secretary desk and a trunk, but when I went to look around the garage today and started opening up all these old pieces (which clearly just need some primitive lovin') I was astounded...OK, I should start with some pictures...
This is the secretary desk that I am already refinishing. As you will see from the next picture it was govered in this DARK, ugly, glossy laquer and 100 years of dirt...cant wait till its finished !
I think I will take the doors off the china cupboard and use it more as a step back cabinet...what do you all think ?
But I just love this litltle prim table...hubby grabbed everything he thought I would like...(sigh, smile)
And guess what...they're going to tear the house down...Hubby and I are trying to get back up there so we can take out all 6 fireplace mantels, solid oak paneled doors, 2 staircase banisters, several beadboard doors etcbefore they tear it all down !!!!!!!!! Ask me if I am excited ??? Do you think hubby's gonna EVER get to have the car in the garage ??? I dont think so !!! I would love to hear what you guys think I should do with some of this stuff, so please comment away !!!
Oh, and while I was posting all this I have 3 seperate dye baths going for my wools for my next rug !! Hooray, I am finally motivated to do something constructive !!!
OK, well I think thats it for now...
