Hubby's Side

Since the bed is off center, Hubby has a lot of space on his side of the bed.

I didn't want to waste the space and get matchie, matchie night stands - so we were looking for a small antique dresser.

 On Craigslist I came across an ad for an 1880's washstand

I texted the seller for the measurements and it looked like it should fit.

Cool, huh?

So we drove over to Oregon....

oh, by the way. I just wanted to mention that it is amazing that we can actually drive to a different State

Just get in the car and drive to a different State.

In 30 minutes you're a different State.


Double cool is that it is State where you don't have to pay sales tax....yup, double cool.

Now back on track to the washstand.

The washstand was really solid and a bit rough, very rustic looking and a great match for the antler lamp that Hubby wants to keep for his bedside light.

Of course we brought it home with us.

The wood wheels on the bottom were not totally intact. One wheel was missing and another was really worn down so I decided to remove the wheels and put sliders on the bottom so we don't scratch up the floor.

It's perfect for Hubby and his needs (a place to put his STUFF away)

no, there are no sockets on the wall behind the bed - I'm going to have to figure out what I can do here.
And Goldilocks said "it was juuuust right".

Aloha A Hui Hou!
