Then I found an old oak desk that I think will look great in my husband's office.
I haven't found a suitable chair for him yet! The top has been modified some with a couple of holes. I think I can take care of that! Besides, he will probably have a couple of stacks of papers that will cover that up!
Here it is from the front.
We also bought some things off of Craigslist.
This is the table and three of the 8 upholstered chairs. This is very much like the set we lost. There are leaves that clip around the perimeter of the table to bring it to 90" across. Although the upholstery is in pristine condition, I will probably make slipcovers so the color will work better with what I have planned.
This is the buffet that goes with it. It is pretty big and extremely heavy. (Unfortunately, I had to take these pictures with my phone and the sun was not cooperating!) I bought a few more things, but I'll show those later.
So far, the only new piece I've bought is the leather sectional. It will be delivered next Saturday.
I am anxious to start painting so I can tell a little better how everything will look, but we're not quite ready for that. (I love painting! Instant gratification!) We've started trying to remove the existing flooring to prepare the floor for hardwood. That is going to be a "bear" of a job, but the estimate to have it done was $2,100. We are going to try to do it ourselves before having it done.
Well, that's my update. I'll have more to share later!
