Dabberdoo and anyone else interested (heirloom pics~~pic heavy**)
These were taken before we had the floors refinished. Please ignore the chippy paint on the floor. You can search for my thread of before and after floors refinished to see how they look now. We don't have the rooms back together yet because we are still stripping wallpaper and have to paint everything.
Our pine hutch. I love this piece. It's very old, mid to late 1800s and very primitive.
Don't mind his floor. When we ripped up the carpeting, it was painted underneath and I just actually had an estimate to have the floors sanded and varnished. They are the original wide planks and they are pine. I love them and can't wait to see them without all of their ugly chipping paint.
His really cool nightstand. (Ignore the chippy floor) It's an old dental sterilizing cabinet. It was a rusty mess when we bought it and my dad refinished it. It has a cool glass shelf inside the glass door and it lights up.
The oak hutch. We bought this with the pine hutch in our bedroom at an auction. They were both painted a horrible color and had been used in a garage for years. I used the bottom of this hutch as my kids' changing table. When the top was refinished, we added it and use it to showcase his antique bottle collection and other goodies. (Pardon my dust! Apparantly, the flash really lets you see the dust underneath the cabinet, better than the naked eye! lol Off to dust that now!)
His armoire. It was a green when I got it. (excuse the hardware that I have to fix)
His antique thermometer wall with my grandmother's hope chest.
His trunk and treasure chest (the desk is something I just picked up for him. It's out of an old school. It's not going to go there, we have to rearrange his room)
This little walnut dresser was from my husband's grandma. I think I'll move it out of Sawyer's room when we do the rearranging.
His room is very bare, we just purged it big time and we are getting ready to paint it (this late fall) so the walls are bare. His floors, along with my scrapbook room, and Hadleigh's room will be refinished first. I can't wait to see his room finished and painted another color.
His desk. My dad re did it for him. (again, ignore chippy floor! It will be gone soon! )
His nightstand will be orange to go with his new color scheme when we paint his room.
