Delusional Perhaps

Today I rented one of these and was going to have The Hubster drive it.
Instead I decided to give it a whirl.
The boys joined in on the fun!:)
We picked up this Thomasville dresser that also has its mirror.
It also came the two side tables. I don't believe they have their original knobs so I will be switching those out probably for some clear crystal ones. 
Aren't these doors just dreamy!? 
The doors go to this frenchy armoire! We had to take the doors off or we never wood have gotten it out of the truck! This furniture is solid wood and HEAVY!! I mean super unbelievable HEAVY! I swear I sweated off 100 pounds today. Well at least in my dreames I did!;) Oh and the yellow on the side of the armoire is a reflection from something. Not sure what from though.
Here is the previous owners pick of the armoire. I tell ya I debated and debated over purchasing this set. I have NEVER purchased so many pieces at one time so it made me very nervous. She wanted quite a bit for it and after a few days I saw that it was still around so I threw a LOW ball offer at her that I felt comfortable with. Well to my surprise the next day she accepted it.
I had not seen it prior to renting the Uhaul so all the way there I was praying there was nothing wrong with it or it would have been a waste of a rental. Overall it is in solid shape. Not one thing wrong with it minus the fact that somebody attempted to refinish it with a VERY orange stain and that it was missing a few hing pins but those should not be hard to find. A very solid and did I mention HEAVY set!?;)
The boys and I had a blast driving around in the Uhaul though we all agreed it was super smelly. After we loaded up The Hubster kindly drove it back to the house.

Not sure what I was thinking when I decided I wanted this set but its mine now and once I finish the piece I am currently working on and get it out to the cottage I can then pick which one of these pieces I will start on next!

So what color would you paint them?

Hope your weekend is going well!:)

Treasure Hunt Thursday #61 & Highlights

Oh my gosh! I can't believe another week has gone by already. The boys are out for the summer so I have and will be wrapped up with them till school starts up again in August. That means fewer posts of course but they are growing up so fast that I want to cherish our time together before they no longer want to hang with dear old  mom!;) Ill be back in full force   I promise once fall comes.
Thanx to everybody for coming to the party every week!:) I have been enjoying going thru all the links!:) Here are some fabulous highlights from last weeks party! 

Kristie over at Market Nine Home linked up her tutorial on how to revamp a lamp shade! If you haven't taken a tour of her home you need to head on over. She has some fabulous taste!

Make Me Pretty Again shared the transformation of this beyond beautiful dresser!

Faye over at Wild Rose Vintage shared all her wonderful treasures she found and her hubby's! I think she will enjoy it just as much!:)

As always thank you to all who partied last week! I am so truly honored to have such talent partying at my place! If you were featured please feel free to grab the "I've Been Featured" button!:) I have the newly updated button with html code on my sidebar! 

 What would be a HUGE help and encourage more comments not just from me but others as well would be for everybody to take off their required verification codes for leaving a comment. This seems to take just a few seconds of time but when you have to do it on 30 or more blogs it takes up a TON of time. Last week most everybody had turned off their Word Verification which made it so much easier for me to stop by everybody's links! Thank you!

Now on to this weeks party! 
As with all parties there are the normal rules. You must link back to From My Front Porch To Yours in your THT POST. Just common courtesy. If ya don't link back ya don't get to party. Only link up to your Treasure Hunt Thursday post and NOT your blog homepage. Please No advertising and PLEASE NO MORE than 3 links from the SAME party goer. Also NO MORE linking up to your own link parties. I am seeing more and more link ups of just people promoting their own linky parties. I know it takes time to go back and make a separate post to join the party but it is just the polite thing to do. If you find your post deleted it is not because I am a meany, I just have to make sure the rules are being followed. You can save some of your posts for the following weeks party!Please only link up new posts and not posts that you linked up the week before.Also be sure to visit at least the link before you and after you to just say Hi! It makes partying all the more fun! If you are new around here I would love it if ya become a follower!:)
