Dave has been working on his clocks. The work he's doing is amazing, so I'll save that for its own blog post. Stay tuned!
I'm starting a new project. We need a buffet in the dining room to house Dave's grandmother's china and silver. We can't have anything tall because of the niches in the wall. So, I've been scouring thrift shops and antique stores looking for just the right piece to refinish and place there.
I found it yesterday at Bethlehem Trading Post, our favorite thrift store. When we walk in, we're greeted with hugs and pecans. Dave got a mission clock working yesterday and I see a great partnership ahead for them.
As for me, I found my piece outside on the porch. It's probably been there for a long, long time, so I got it for a song. I love it because while the original style is mid-century modern, the overall lines can be vintaged more with the right paint and new drawer pulls. I love the clean lines of this piece. Dave will need to cut a couple of new shelves in the doors, but that won't take long.
This will be my most challenging project yet, but I'm looking forward to bringing it back to life. Wish me luck!
