New furniture from old wood for the new house

Last week we drove down to Eugene to bring back furniture that Robin’s brother, Mark, made for us. He makes beautiful pieces out of reclaimed wood.

We transported two headboards for our guest rooms, two bedside tables, and a bench for the first-floor hall. We had already brought up four other tables and a cart for the pantry.

Mark and his wife, Dawn, came back with us, and he spent two days installing the headboards. They also brought two small “pagodas” that Dawn made. We put them on either side of the fireplace in our bedroom, and Robin got electric candles to put in them.

We also stopped in Portland and cleared out my sister Nancy’s storage unit. More on that in a future post.
