Can We Do Something Else?...the Waveland


Along came a buffet on Craigslist in February, price $50.
Hey Dan, it's my birthday, there's my present!




SO,
he was sent he went to get it in Chicago.
It's HUGE.





But in the garage it sat for March, April, May,
~June, and July,~
and along came a BIGGER project,
and now August is here.





Dan, can we take a break from the camper restoration and
DO SOMETHING ELSE?
(There's a boatload of furniture in the garage).






So, out came the sander and primer,
and then my paintbrush,
and here is my 1920s Waveland,
purchased on Waveland Ave, Chicago.

(ok Dan, I went back and fixed the spelling for 'Waveland' on the blog).





I did paint the hardware...
(I have a secret thing for painted hardware,
especially painted tear-drop hardware, don't ask me why, I really don't know).






Some of you know that we keep redoing buffets
only to send them on their merry way...

but the Waveland
got sent straight to the front room.







She will be my new festive furniture piece,
to decorate with pumpkins, and nativities, and spring bunnies.







I love this photo with my slice of blue ceiling showing.

And,
the garage is now on the way to being organized,
so I am content with that, too.







My candlestick holders
and Sacred Heart are from an old church,
aren't they neat?
Those are the finds I never pass up.







And then she went to party at...

Such a lovely buffet. I just picked one up at an auction this past weekend and I can't wait to remake it. And I know I will want to keep it!

Andrea,
You amaze me with your projects. I don't think I would be able to part with this - she's a beauty. And what makes it more special is your Sacred Heart statue resting on it. I actually liked the buffet before it was painted, but it looks great now. Can't wait to see it adorned with all the Fall treasures.

Love,
~Sheri

Oh, the buffet is just gorgeous! It looks so good in your front room.

Thanks for giving us a look.
