A Sneak Peak
....into my "new" kitchen. Lee and I have been busy changing
out furniture....again!! The red piece has now been put in the
sitting room, keeping room or whatever you want to call it.
And this old mantel has taken it's place...complete with brick hearth trimmed
out in old tobacco sticks.
The monster piece we had in the room off the kitchen...
aka the old dining room...has now been taken to the shop.
Thanks to Justin for helping us move it...we guessed it's weight to be
around 250-300 pounds. So glad to have it GONE!!
The story of the mantel...for starters it was free...a gift from
Mario at Second Time Around Antiques. Well kinda free, we traded a cart for the mantel,
sign and some other stuff.
Brought it home and started cleaning on it...keep in mind that this was outside...
I hate bugs...this thing has been taken completely apart, scrubbed and put back
together again. It had wood roaches coming out of it....
I thought I was going to have heart failure.
They are gross...and all dead!!!
We are kinda having a small storm right now so
with that said I am going to let you guys go.
Talk to you later,
