Authentic Mid-Century

Working on cleaning out our guest house we have some large pieces of furniture that just have to go.

The mid-century dresser was inherited by our son from his grandmother.

For example we have been storing a vintage mid-century dresser in the Cottage that has come down in the family to our son.

The chest has 10 drawers.

He has no place to keep it so I offered to put it on Craigslist for him.

This dresser is 69" long by 18.25" deep by 29" tall.

It’s listed locally and hopefully will be gone by the end of the holiday weekend.

Are you reluctant to weed through your furniture?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
