Something Old, Something Else Old
Remember how I complained that everything in our (problematic) living room was the same height?
Well, not anymore.
This china cabinet belonged to Taylor’s grandmother and recently found its way to our house. It’s a lovely piece and I really think it makes the room much more interesting. We had talked about doing built-ins on either side of the dining room doorway, but for now those are on the back burner. Well, they were already on the back burner. So maybe now they’re in the freezer.
There are doors too. We haven’t attached them yet, obvi. But I couldn’t resist throwing some of our stuff in the shelves for the time being.
So tell me Internet, what do you know about (what I think is) wax build-up? See the cloudy stuff on the drawers? It comes off with a little fingernail scrape. Any other methods?
Also in the living room is a rickety table holding a half-dead fern.
A little Craigslist special I decided to pick up last week because I clearly needed something else to do.
It needs quite a bit of TLC. The original plan was to paint it, but something about the stain is speaking to me. We shall see. It will be a few weeks before this comes up in the queue.
This weekend my Dad and Stepmom were in town. We did lots of antiquing and took in a little history, too.
2 days until Alt—Eeeek!
