Dining Room in a Box

Its been a long time since I updated this blog. Sorry but it seems that real work and real life caught up to Mr. Flannery for a while. That and a lack of inspiration and general malaise related to economic and political issues that seem to be overwhelming my outside activities. Anyway I am going to try to post to the blog more often.

I have a wonderful piece of furniture that I have decided to call a dining room in a box. It is a Duncan Phyffe style buffet with a china cabinet at the bottom surmounted by a felt lined silverware drawer. Then a pull out table and 4 additional leaves. The table will pull out in one section as a small desk or out all five leaves to almost 8 feet long.

Unfortunately the top is badly scratched and the front is sun faded. I am going to paint it black and send it to Gypsy Lea's for next week's monthly sale.

well I certainly understand. Been feeling a little "malaised" myself :)

Now THAT is a treasure and it's a good thing I'm not within driving
distance or I could save you the trouble of painting it.
