Weekend Moves

We’re planning to rearrange some bits of furniture this weekend.

This chest will fit in the master closet under the window.

I have been using my cedar chest as a bench in the mudroom.

The 43-inch chest should fit in the 48-inch space.

The smaller of two cedar chests, it’s headed to the master closet.

The larger chest has been stored under the large painting in the living room.

The larger chest will temporarily be moved into the mudroom.

Rattan bench bought for the conservatory is moving to the living room.

I think the rattan bench might be a good replacement in the living room.

Are you trying to get rid of some old 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.

  1. It’s hard for me to let go of things. I love to do what you are doing though – re-thinking where things are and where they might go to work harder and better.
