Here's....................................Joanna ( that's her name - she told me so )
She's BIGGER than she looks - 6.5 FEET - but take a look at her details!
Now I bought her for my bedroom actually - and was going to sell this one which is I'm currently using
but I'd like to show you what the hallway of a Victorian flat looks like
|that's my bedroom door just to the left in the photo|
there's absolutely no way we can get that dresser into the bedroom - without breaking out the wall on top of the bedroom door - which I would do without any hesitation at all - but I think that would be the one conversation NOBODY would want to hear between John and myself.....................
( just a side note - I came across this once - it's a hallway in Brooklyn - blogged about it before I had any followers so no one has seen it yet, lol - in fact I could just repost my first year of blogging and I'd be pretty safe LOL - this Brooklyn hallway is my Montreal hallway's doppelganger - mirror image almost - )
Anyways I may sell this instead
which I've wanted to sell for a long time - but we had this little problem
John promised he would fix the leg when we picked it up - let's see now I've had it now for at least 18 months so that tells you how long it takes for me to get things done around here!!! I " propped " the leg
up and it sat like this for all that time.......................
Today he's gone to Home depot to get the supplies to fix it
Suzan says - John, do you think you could fix the leg on the buffet so I can finally sell it?
John says - I told you already that I'm going to fix it
Suzan says - but that was a very long time ago - I hate to be a nag about it but......................
John says - OK - EVERYTHING HAS TO BE DONE RIGHT AWAY, AS SOON AS SUZAN WANTS IT DONE SHE SNAPS HER FINGERS AND EVERYONE HAS TO RUN
Can you sense his annoyance?
Suzan says - I don't know about that John - I snapped my fingers 18 months ago- and if this is how fast you run - we're in deep *&%* here darling.
But in all fairness he did get up and RUN today -
So I'm thinking he just didn't hear my fingers snapping away the first time.....................
And by the way - we're here 2 years next month - before we moved in I painted the entire flat - he promised he would do the ceilings ( at over 10 feet they're a killer for me ) before the furniture arrived.
The ceilings have not been done yet.................................
Snap, crackle, POP mister.....................
P.S. Here's a small snapshot of where I'm going with the dresser
Everytime I pick a piece - I think " oh this is nothing - a little paint - a little distressing - presto "
But now that I've actually started working on her she's far more work than I anticipated - this is going to take quite awhile for me to finish because I'm working on other things at the same time - she's kind of like
my " go to " when I need a break from the other stuff. I'm trying a new technique ( you can see it on the bottom 2 drawers - if it works out I'll share! )
