I wish I could find this material again. I have a small piece from my mothers materials
Ok I need some advise. I need to know what everyone thinks I should do with this furniture. Should I have it refinished?? Should I leave the way it is Shabby Sheek??
This is furniture that was in my mother and father's home. My mother bought this furniture in an antique store in town. It was a very dark wood. This was in the 60's when everyone was painting furniture different colors and antiquing them. Kinda how they are doing it today. I had a guy who refinishes furniture give me an amount to have it refinished but I am reluctant to do it. My Uncle tells me to leave it the way it is. After we finish the house and get all the rooms painted. (SEE Prior post May 2010 our new old house) It will look fabulous! I am torn.
The funny story with this furniture is that I have always wanted it. My mother had promised me when they would leave there home that I could have it. Well this was the joke for a long time with my sisters. AHA Heather gets the dining room furniture and Jamie(sister) gets the piano. Funny Funny!! Like it was ugly furniture. I loved it! I love the mexican feel of it. (My parents lived in a old stucco Mexican style house).I thought it was great, they thought it was funny. Anyway the sad time came when we had to divide my parents belongings and we did very well with it until the dining room furniture came up. It was 2 days of going thru all my parents belongings. Dividing it up. Did you ever hear the Carly Simon song The River when she sings about fighting over the pearls ( I cry every time I hear this song). Well we fought over the dining room set. It was the only argument we had at that stressful time. It was at the end of the 2 days of going thru their things and we were all tired & sad. We decided to go home and regroup come back the next day and start all over. When my sisters came back the next day they decided that I should have the dining room set. It was a sweet moment. I love my sisters. So anyway that is why this dining room set is so special. No pressure! Just need a little advise. I am so torn.
