My mother/father/dog-in-law will be here this morning. They live about two hours away and try to come at least once a month. I love it when they visit because, in addition to bringing food, it's a total day off. The down side is, it's a total day off. There's quite a few things I need to get finished, but it's just not going to happen today. My grandparents downsized last year from a 3000 sq ft, 4 bedroom home to a 3 bedroom of half the size. Since I started my little shop, they've been giving me things that don't have a place in their new space. Don't panic, these aren't heirlooms, just odds and ends they've gathered over the years.
How great are these chairs?!
They all need some love and I can't wait to get at it, just not today. I started slipcovering one and that's as far as I've gotten. I'm really excited to get to the glider! I'm going to paint it white and do a modern pink fabric on the cushions. It will be less appealing to just anybody, but since it was a freebie I can be a little more daring to wait for the right buyer to come along.
But I REALLY can't wait to dig into these!
I'm not certain that I'll let the secretary go. I've been wanting one. I have a small office area set up in the kitchen, but I rarely use it because it's so far from everyone. We'll see...
Both I found for a steal on my local Facebook yardsale site. If your area doesn't have one, you should consider starting one. I love it. Lots of perks to this that Craigslist can't offer. Mainly, you can see openly who you are dealing with in any transaction. Of course, I live in a small town and we all know each other anyway.
Everybody dies famous in a small town. :) -a truer line, never uttered.
