A friend used to kid me that I have never had a car in any of the garages we have had!
She's right - in our house, garages are meant for storage!!!!
Well, Carol- my 3 car garage was CLEAN for a whole 24 hours-
D/H, aka, Mr. Green Jeans, rented a truck to help a friend empty out his mother's condo.The mother had passed away, the condo was sold, and the contents had to be removed.
This was all the stuff the friend did NOT want, and since Goodwill could not do a pickup in time,
D/H brought it home.
To our clean garage.............
I have spent the past few days (while D/H is in DisneyWorld!), sorting thru' the stuff. I have emptied ALL the boxes!
There are now several stacks of boxes ready to be loaded up in my car for donating to the thrift store; the kitchen counters are full of stuff washed, and waiting to be priced to go in the shop; a few things listed on Freecycle awaiting pickup; and there is a bunch of furniture yet to be unwrapped.
~Have a peek~
I love this little chair - my mom said she had a similar pair when she first got married - but doesn't remember what they were called. I have tried researching under so many different names- but cannot find a similar style.
Anyone out there know what this chair is??? It is small, low to the ground, almost child sized, altho' I can sit in it comfortably.
Below, are several nice, but not my style, chairs. We will keep a nice, small, green wing back recliner. I had given it to my mother, but she was not strong enough to operate it......so, it's in my room temporarily.
Another piece of furniture I can't use below- a gorgeous, Ethan Allen (?) white on white cloth 6 ft couch. We don't do white cloth in a house with 3 dogs! It will remain in white plastic wrap 'til it finds a new home! Some of these pieces will be sold, to offset the price of the moving van.
There is also a cute pull out bed/loveseat, of country blue gingham
Lamps or glassware, anyone?
I am keeping this cool old bridge floor lamp, with swivel bulb - if I can find the attachments to hang the shade. I found a company called Paxton online - but I would have to buy the shade and special socket attachment - which would run about $75. I did find a shade there, that I fell in love with, but I am going to try to hold out a bit for a less pricey solution.........I now know why I see alot of these style lamps turned into planters or having bird cages hanging from them - it's too expensive to replace the shades!!!!
Well, hope you liked the tour of my once tidy (albeit temporarily so) house and garage.
And, Carol, you were so right, my garage will NEVER house a car!!!!!!!!
