|The barn, before...|
|The girls don't care what I do, as long as I don't start storing stuff in their coop|
|Waiting to be painted (not the white cabinets -- they're great just as they are)|
|I'm getting Christmas stuff ready for the new booth. This choir boy is one of my favorites, along with the home-made porch candles.|
The two-tone drawers on this little chest REALLY bother me, but the green is great! Why would anyone leave just two drawers and the knobs unpainted? They must have been getting in touch with their artistic side.... I looked into getting a complementary green for the opposite drawers, but it ended up costing too much to make it worthwhile for resale. Instead, I found a perfect shade in a sample size to match the green and am going to paint just the two odd drawers (but not the knobs). I might paint the knobs antique white, but I'll probably end up leaving them alone.
Mr. KV and I will be moving things into the new booth Saturday morning (Lord willing and the other dealer moves out...) One thing we're taking in is a mid-century metal office desk that we've had all of our married life (37 years...). Neither one of us can remember where we got it, but we know it was when we were newlyweds and one of our offices remodeled, so we got it for free. It's so cool -- seafoam green with a formica top and all the style of the 60s. It's in near-mint condition, even though we've moved it to 5 states.
I'll post pictures of the booth next week when the dust settles. There might even be a barn picture where you can see the walls, but don't count on it!
