It’s finally a beautiful spring day and a sunny 71 outside. The perfect day for delivery of our heirloom furniture to the farmhouse. Even the light sweater I’m wearing is too much for me!
A few months ago my wonderful Texas family decided to give us the furniture from my Grandmother’s house as it’s getting ready to be put on the market. It was lovingly packed up and driven to Maine through the Mayflower moving company. Our driver Eddie was amazing and very nice.
Our new heirloom furniture has been in my Grandmother’s house since 1961 my father told me. It’s certainly been there ever since I can remember. Which means it’s been in our family since my father was a teenager. Every piece is in amazing condition and I can’t wait to put them all in their new home when the farmhouse is finished. For now they are safe in the big garage.
The red sofa will go in our living room and the floral sofa will make it’s way to my new office. It’s difficult to tell but the floral sofa has beautiful lines, soft curves on the sides. Just wonderful pieces.
There’s Eddie moving in the box springs for a full size bed that will go in our guest room. This bed belonged to my Aunt since she was a little girl. Artwork and other smaller items in the boxes there to the left.
One of two big dressers. All the wood furniture is solid maple. And seriously, like no scratches. Not sure how my Grandmother did it, but I really hope we can keep it in the same condition!
Beautiful large wood framed mirror to hang over one of the dressers.
Ok, so just turn your head upside down for this one above. It’s the top of a large china hutch. You really can’t find furniture like this anymore.
The second large dresser.
There are two of these ‘single dressers’ that were in my father’s room growing up. We aren’t sure if they will go in our room or one of the kids’ rooms.
Desk for study. Finally a true space for Naomi to work. This desk was with my father when he attended St. Marks School of Texas from 1960-1964!
Two matching end tables for the living room.
Nicely stacked and waiting for its forever home in the farmhouse.
Headboard for the canopy bed for the guest room. I know you wanna come stay with us!
This low console table was built by my Grandfather for my Grandmother. It’s my favorite piece I think because my Grandfather passed away before I was born. It’s now the only thing I have of his and I’m so very proud to be able to give it a home in my house.
