Last Friday we took a little day trip up to Morris CT to visit a new friend we met at Brimfield. Boy was it worth it. Here’s a little peek into one of his barns:
And that’s only one of four aisles in one of his barns.
Best of all, everywhere you look there are patches of our favorite color: Scoville green. Our friend occasionally does factory cleanouts for Scovill, a one-time giant of American industry who used to paint all their work benches, trash cans, wood trim, etc., the most perfect light green color you can possibly imagine:
So as daylight faded we started filling up our Uhaul trailer. Stools, chairs, drawers, pink Pyrex, and tons of Scovill green.
But our favorite piece?
This beautiful work bench has one door and eleven drawers of varying size, all of which slide nicely. Extremely unusual construction from gorgeous old pine. It measures 56 inches wide, 42 tall, and 29 deep.
And if we had any more space in our little apartment, we’d keep it for ourselves forever.
