Until last week...she texted me some pictures of a vanity, a dresser, and a bed. This was her furniture when she was growing up. She just wanted to gift them to us for Meredith's room. When I saw the pics, I was so ecstatic!
I've been wanting to re-do Meredith's room at some point...but there are some other things on the list before I got to that.
So here is what I'm working with...
Brass bed...Headboard + footboard...look how tall it is!
Vanity + mirror..
I might just have to steal this for my entry way...hmm...
There is a story behind the dresser.
My father-in-law brought this piece home to my mother-in-law. (can't remember the year) Mom said, Oh, I used to have a dresser like that when I was little. She remembered her mother getting mad at her for carving ABC into the jewelry lid.
So I'm really happy that now Meredith has some special pieces with history, that we can keep in the family. Especially those from Vickie...because Meredith adores her. (well, everyone adores Vickie)
Thank you Vickie & Dennis! We love you!
I doubt I will paint these pieces...I will probably sand them down and re-stain a darker finish...
But what about the brass bed? Keep? or Paint?
Give a sister some feedback!
Like I always say, Stay tuned.
Maybe I'll complete a project before the end of the year.
