Go Ahead, Drool

So, I took on another job, because the 2 I already have aren't enough? The Antique Barn that I used to have a booth at (until bad economy hit) asked me if I would come work for them, making junk, painting furniture, etc. I get to set my own hours, work whenever I want.  I am loving it!   I need to remember my camera to show you some of the actual projects I have been working on, but until then I wanted to show you a few things to drool over.  They bought 3 filled to the brim containers from Europe.  They are not even undone packing one yet and have found so many amazing things, chairs from the 18th century, trunks full of old books and dolls, and artwork (much of it ruined unfortunately), mirrors and mirrors and mirrors, farm tables, hutches, huge carved pieces, yadda, yadda, yadda!
Cool old trunk,
An airplane propeller sitting on a trunk,

A great English 2 person school desk,
Fantastic table with huge brass bowl/tub (?) on top,

 Beautifully carved sideboard, with sled and dough table,
and these super cool Victorian chimney caps.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.  I hope to get my hands on some of the junkier parts and pieces!
