My wife's grandfather owned this chair. There is a burn in the one arm from his lighting up his pipe. I had put it out on the side porch to keep it out of the way of the furnace installation. Then when snow was predicted, I brought it in to the construction zone. It is still a mess in the gallery area. I believe all the wall painting is done in there except for a couple of touch up ares. We have four different kinds of rockers to move with us. I eliminated a rocker that was just in such bad shape. I cringed when I dumped it but I don't do miracle work with antique furniture anymore. It was only in parts and was rough looking. I still have a commode-like vanity of my wife's that will need a complete restore. It has the original mirror on it and is missing one drawer. I can make a new drawer and take off all that green paint. The main large drawer at the bottom is a curved front one. I am anxious to see what wood it is that is under that paint.
A day off for us today as we are wearing down physically. My hands get pretty inflamed with the work that I am doing and I need to let them heal up a bit. We have errands to do today and maybe a bookstore will be in our crosshairs sight today.
I hope everyone is well out there. Thanks for stopping by today.
