Just gotta show you my recent score from a local estate auction.  Isn't it precious?  It's a youth bed.  A standard baby bed mattress fits it perfectly.  I think she's probably from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. 

All I did to it was rub a little stain all over to bring it back to life.

I had TWO mattresses on it BEFORE selling another youth bed, and it looked much prettier.  But still, it got soooo much attention from my customers that I took it down, loaded it back into my truck, and took it to my favorite woodworker man (read about him HERE), and asked if he might could reproduce the bed for me.

 And, that little 92 year old man said 'SURE'. So, I now have two of these to paint. Check back in a couple days to see the painted version of this 100 year old sweetie.  See ya then!!!  8-)

  7. Needless to say, luxuries watches come with
    hefty price tag - some with an extremely hefty price tags.
    It is always important to recognize the need for investigating the real reason(s) for truly
    investing in a watch of such cost and financial significance to
    anyone's investment portfolio. Then there are the exclusively, not recognizable to all of us, unless we travel in certain elevated financial circles, they are.
