Mama being productive and sale
While the kiddos were sickly and napping, planted in front of the TV with DH, etc., I got alot done! I am not a scrooge, but I pack up the Christmas things the day after Christmas. I have to, it's called allergies. Have you ever really looked at the amount of dust on the ornaments and tree after they sit in your house for a month?
Then my cleaning streak continued, and knowing we will have a fund-raising yard sale for Jenna and AJ's adoption, I was realy motivated. All of that stuff on the kitchen table is going in the sale.
And doesn't my kitchen look great now! It's the 1st time I've seen this much countertop surface in a month!
I am selling this antique dresser. It is definately older than 1940, my grandparents set up housekeeping with it. We refinished it in 1991. Interested??
And this dresser--not an antique, must go too. It is solid wood, no cheap stuff. We got it at an unfinished furniture store, and have loved it. The drawer glides have ball bearings-neat. It was Jake's, and his room is becoming a library/guest room, since it has built-in bookshelves. He moved a loveseat from the basement up there yesterday. That will give us room in the basement to accomadate 2 more kids during school time.
Lastly, we call this the buffet, not sure what it should really be called. This piece was made on the farm. The top drop-down door is where the doughboard went, back in the day when biscuits were made daily.
The 2 side bins were used for flour, they tip out. It's been in my family for around a hundred years, best I can figure. It was re-finished in the 1980's.
I had been debating on what to do with it, there is no other place in the house that I can put it. With Jake home this week, and the extra chair at the table, it just confirmed to me that the piece had to go. Wouldn't it look great in your home??
Although I have loved having this piece, I must make room in the kitchen for 8+ people to eat daily.
Let me know if you are interested in one of these pieces!
