Tonight my mom brought over some of my old doll furniture
I finally have the room to store my childhood things that I plan on keeping forever (or at least for a long time)
These were wood pieces "Santa" got for me from an Amish festival in Indiana
They came unfinished...which means the super custom paint job was done by mom herself!
Let me explain...I had/have a Samantha Parkington American Girl Doll
She is a young girl who grew up during the turn of the century (and I don't mean year 2000)...
Anyway I was the type of kid who knew exactly what she wanted
And I wanted furniture that looked Victorian and specifically a dresser with a scarf draped over it
(Yeah, I was a weird one)
What's even crazier though is how my mom always delivered...no matter how off the wall the request was
Tonight my mom suggested that I sand down the furniture and repaint it when I have kids
And although I think she is right that these pieces would look killer in a yellow and gray paint job...
I don't know if I could ever change them...they were exactly what I wanted then...and still are
I guess we'll just see if I have any kids who have an obsession with the early 1900's like me...I hope I do!
