The only thing that cost me a dollar during this whole process was probably the drop cloth I used to wrap up the finished pieces, and chances are that cost me more than that. Anyway, of course when I saw “older” and “victorian” and “grandparents” I knew that I needed this.

I never got any great before shots. But this is what I was able to find:

6 months, lots of paint, sweat and labor later and the set is finally complete. It’s now for sale at $1,150 for the set.

I’d love to write something beautiful about this set, but honestly, it has sucked the life out of me and I’m ready to say goodbye. Here’s the finished product:
