My sister is coming dwelling this week to assist with that too. Life with 90 yr outdated mother and father is ever altering and we’re studying as we go. I’ll maintain you posted later, however for now we are attempting to get her steady and out of ache.
One other huge factor occurring proper now could be I’m on the brink of promote my rental home. I’ll be sharing that with you too, however proper now we’re beginning to get it spiffed as much as promote. I’ll be portray a contemporary coat of paint on a few of the rooms inside and getting the skin able to go so keep tuned for that later. I had the outside painted final yr.

Undecided but in regards to the nightstands. We’ll see what occurs as I transfer alongside. The mattress went within the visitor room as a default. It made sense to try this when Mark and I obtained married and needed to purchase new furnishings for our room. The King mattress is absolutely too huge for this room. Not a lot else matches in right here, so I’m downsizing to a Queen to provide slightly extra room in right here.
The room is sufficiently big for a mattress, 2 nightstands and one different piece of furnishings.
I’ve this beautiful Thomasville chest of drawers that I purchased in Birmingham and have had effectively over 10 years. Purchased it at an vintage retailer, so it’s classic. I could promote this piece as a result of I nonetheless have one other massive French armoire that has been at my outdated home that I’m planning to carry over right here after I redo the room.
As I discussed, I’m on the brink of put my outdated home in the marketplace and I’ll share that with you as I get that course of going. I plan to get it able to promote someday in June. Mark’s daughter, Traci and her household have been renting from me and so they simply purchased one other home of their very own, so it’s good timing on this sizzling market we’re in to promote my outdated home. So meaning, furnishings flip over is so as. I had left the outdated French armoire that was in my outdated bed room and so they used it, however now I’ve to maneuver it. So I’d slightly maintain it than this chest I believe. It’s nonetheless a lovely piece and can look fairly with the brand new mattress.
These nightstands are classic too and I’ve had them effectively over 20 years. I’m certain I received’t get near what these price again then, however I’ll both maintain them and possibly paint them, or promote them. I haven’t selected that but. They’re petite and really cute, with a door and three drawers behind it. We are going to see what I resolve when the time comes. I hate to purchase one thing model new so I would search for one thing else classic that higher matches my look in right here. We are going to see!
