We sold our entertainment center and have our TV stand up for sale. Instead, we are switching to dressers. One day, in the family room, we’ll have built-ins and the dresser will retire to another room. But, for now, here is what we found.
Both are french provincial style.
The first is a Thomasville piece that is repainted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. And, waxed to finish it off. The top is just stained wood. Original hardware. Very heavy. The seller is very sweet and has an etsy shop called Nod to the Past. Check it out. She will ship things!
The second is also painted with Annie Sloan paint and is a little more distressed, and a little more detailed. And, a little larger… It’s a Bassett Furniture piece. Also very heavy (solid wood). Original hardware.
She also sent a before photo of the piece.
This lady is a nurse by day, but also has a shop called Thelma and Louize. Her physical shop is located at the Austin Antique Mall, but she also has a FB page. I’ll talk more about her shop tomorrow!
A quick update on what we’ve sold from our home. We have now sold our large entertainment center, desk and hutch from the craft room, leather sofa set, master bed, master night stands, and a few other pieces. We still have a few things left such as saddle style stools, two fabric sofas, chandeliers, coffee table, end table, lounge chairs, etc. And, I’m sure once we get moved in and arrange everything, we’ll have a bunch of accessories that need to go. Touch base with me if you are interested in any of these items.
Things are going well and we are still supposed to close on the new house next week!
Back to the topic of Craigslist. I put a link on my FB to this fabulous post by Kelly at A View Along the Way. You’ll want to check it out. It has lots of search tips on it. I also read somewhere (can’t remember now) about Craigseasy.com. It’s fabulous if you are using your computer to search. You drag an easy button to your bookmark bar. Then, when you run your searches, you click the easy button and it shows you the results in large pictures only!
Share any other tips you have, any time!
We can’t wait to see exactly where these pieces land in the new house – I have an idea, but sometimes you just have to see it before you know for sure.
