First Furniture from this old House

Good Evening
Boy Darrell and I have really been busy this week. We brought home our first load from the old house the end of last week. We have sorted and cleaned for days and managed to get a few things made for the web site. But most of all I wanted to share the first piece of furniture with you. I decided to keep this one. It is a dining room hutch and was just inside the front door. Darrell and his brother loaded it in the trailer and you should have seen he and I trying to get it out and up on the porch. It is solid oak and weighs a ton. He took it all apart for me and I painted it a soft white, called a breath of white. I absolutely love it. Darrell got all the hardware back on today and I couldn't wait to get dishes put in it. You are getting to see the picts. of the before and after. Hope you like it.
We have decided to go back down tomorrow to work on it over the week end, I will post more pict. of the goodies we find as we get them home.
Hope you enjoy your memorial day with family.
