Gentlemen's wardrobe


Our bedroom is complete. Tonight, the son came over and helped his Dad move the gentleman's wardrobe upstairs. It was somewhere in that move up the stairs, that the son said, you could have built a ranch style timber frame!

In refinishing this wardrobe, I found the date of October 1918 stamped on the back of the mirror. Hard to believe it is 91 years old.



It looks good in the room. We now have three wardrobes in our bedroom.
See how it turns into a neat little desk?

I still would like to find something in oak to use for night stands. Otherwise I'm finished.

Now time to get busy filling the wardrobe up! I plan on using it for fabric storage.

My dear Mother, I believe the "somwhere in the move" that you are referring to was on the landing 1/2 way up the stairs.


P.S. Thanks for the BeerRocks, I'm sure thats not the correct spelling though.

So beautiful. And pretty cool finding 1918 stamped on it. Wonder what that thing has seen in its lifetime?
