Look What Arrived!

Yes, you guessed it!


We had another furniture deliver today from Gates Antiques!

Look what came today!


The Corner Cupboard we won last week has arrived!


An Inlay Chess Table for the library!


A 1776 Chest for the Hipkins-Bernard Room!


A Wardrobe to place the 32 inch television in for the Hipkins-Bernard Room!


The Conway Room now has a 1730 rare Acorn Tester Bed! 

It is made of Poplar but stained to look like Mahogony. 

We just need to finish the Canopy for the top!


The Conway Room has a Linen Press to hide the 32 inch television!

We are going to add curtains to hide it behind the glass.


A Card Table for the Library


The Madison Room with its new blue wall color is almost done!

We received this 1730 Mahogany Tester Bed.

We just need to add the Canopy.


Remember this Federal Line Press they were working on?

It is finally here and done!


A Tilt Top Table for the Madison Room!


Two End Tables for the Madison Room….

But there is a surprise with these!


They are wash stands!


Got the marble end tables and lamps in place in the Turner Room.


And added a Wardrobe to hide another television!


Check out these hard working guys!

They are from Gates Antiques!

They have worked up a sweat moving furniture around the Mansion!

Thank you Jamel and John!


We also got some mirrors in place


Two Gilded Mirrors on the West and East walls of the Formal Dining Room


And another larger mirror over the fireplace in the Formal Dining Room.

What else could we ask for today?

Wait there was a little


this morning when I went to let Hurley out!


Yes, we have decided to call our little skunk “Surprise” which was suggested by one of our readers!

But I don’t think “Surprise” is going to get to stay. 

We can’t have “Surprise” showing up to greet guest.

That would be Hurley’s job!

So tomorrow I will be contacting Animal Control to trap and relocate “Surprise”.


Hurley has agreed not to go on strike.

  1. And then Hurley won’t get skunked and you won’t have to bathe him in tomato juice! Everything is looking sooooo beautiful. What an amazing job you have done!

  2. John says:

    Wow, every piece of furniture and the rooms are looking great! 200 year old furniture in mint condition! Good deal to see Surprise get boxed and shipped – Hurley will certainly appreciate you 😉

    God is just AMAZING, ISN’T HE?! I know it must make your heads spin when you see how far you’ve come from one year ago! You are certainly making your historical imprint on this Virginia plantation! \o/

    Love all the new furniture Michelle!

  5. Glenda Ennis says:

    Oh, man, how fun! All of these pieces are beautiful, but that corner cabinet is something else!

  8. MCatherine says:

    Everything is superb, but I especially heart that corner china cabinet–simply wonderful!

    Have you thought of having your own wine? You could contract local wineries to private label it for you. If you are ambitious enough, you could plant a small vineyard and eventually make your own wine. This endeavor is not for the faint of heart, which I can see you are definitely not!

    Amazing Pieces. I know you are so excited.
