We were gone all day Saturday....went up to Brenham, Tx..and did some shopping.
We left home with every intention of NOT buying anything larger than an breadbox....( lol )... OK FINE !!
You walk into an Antique shop..and you stumble onto a piece of Eastlake Victorian that you fall in love with immediately....then you ask to " see it" out in the light...taken from under the dusty old stack it was behind when you first spotted it..and your interest grows deeper ...and your hooked.
Other customers in the shop walk by and admire it too.
NO doubt SHILLS, every single one of them !!!! (tongue in cheek ! )
But you TRY to keep a "poker face." ....(smiling) .... SO....our ( truly) delightful antique dealer ( Bebe) ... gives you a price you can't refuse....and...
now.... you own it !
BUT....it's GOT to be made lighter in color somehow...either by stripping it or by painting it...not sure which yet.
The panel in the middle is going to be removed too....to make way for a mirror and we will probably add a shelf at the bottom..and then up on the wall it goes.
It is 3/4 bed size in width.
THERE goes the budget again for a few more months !!
