Welcome! Today I am sharing my Mother In Law's dresser which I am assuming is from the early 1900's. Since we moved a year ago to our condo we have had this piece down in our storage unit. It took me one year to convince my Sweetie that I should paint this piece. We brought it up into the Dining room so I could store some of my vintage linens in it and I am now thinking I don't want to paint it. It is in rough shape for sure but it goes so nicely with the other woods in the room. I am sure it will not escape the paint brush or stain refinishing for very long but for now she will stay as she is until I can make up my mind.
I love the decorative handles!
Some of my tarnished pieces have made their way onto her top. I sure struggle with the look of tarnished silver. I love the look but when I do finally polish it I love that look as well.
The toile runner I have sewn for the top is one of my favourite fabrics and I have used it to cover the seats of chairs as well as new covering for a few small stools.
This is one of my treasures we picked up in Victoria B.C. and I love it for serving iced tea.
The three pictures below are by the artist Jan Korthals who was born in 1916 and lived in Holland until his death in 1973. I am drawn to his art and have five larger pieces of Paris & area.
These three pictures are of Delft, Amsterdam & Nymegen in the Netherlands. We are hoping to visit The Netherlands for a month in 2013 so we are really looking forward to finding some more treasures while we are there.
I hope you enjoyed your visit today! Thank you for stopping in...
