These three pieces will get painted-the telephone stand and the base of this birdbath-someone painted it a horrid orange that was supposed to mimic terracotta-eww!
This vintage rock maple 1940's desk will get refinished, not painted-love the slightly curved legs on the front.
I also picked up this complete set of Mothers Encyclopedia from the 1930's. It covers everything from 'Accidents to Worry' (no X, Y, or Z topics). A very interesting read for sure! This would make a great shower gift for a mother-to-be that appreciates the old way of doing things, some of the advice is is appropriate for today.
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
I'm headed out to the pool...
