However, just recently we have been spending our weekends helping my dad move house. He is downsizing (seriously) from a five bedroom house to a two bedroom bungalow. Our house in the meantime has been filling with stuff he can not accommodate but I am too sentimental to get rid of. Sound familiar?
This dresser looked surprisingly good in our dining room filled with our dinner service.
Then dad convinced me to have the servery that went with it which is growing on me slowly. It was was my great-grandparents' furniture from their farmhouse.
It looks a bit strange with modern scrapbook colours on the shelf and some DIY doors which I MUST paint but all in all it is looking mighty fine. Bloke and I bought the Edwardian easel 10 years ago at an Antiques shop - we don't know why, we just both liked it. I did art at Uni and those charcoal drawings are mine, I look at them now and can't believe I drew them.
Want to see it all together?
Mmmm! some wood colours going on there. What do you think? Maybe I could hunt down a table cloth and change the curtain pole to help it blend together a bit. Suggestions welcome...
