Note to future self:
I’m really sorry for painting the McCobb furniture and for getting rid of the original hardware and doors. I am pregnant and obviously not thinking clearly. I hope one day you will forgive me. I’m sure I will make some other mistakes along the way. Maybe there will be some way in the future that others can learn from my mistakes…..
Oh, and I’m really sorry I ripped out the original Crane sink and faucet just because it was blue….
Dear Past Susan:
Don’t be so hard on yourself. You didn’t know. It was before everything was on the internet and you had never even heard of Paul McCobb! It did look cute in Trent’s room. At least you knew good lines when you saw them. But still…….how could you?! And where did you put those original doors and hardware???? You never throw things like that away!
While out showing houses last weekend, I spied another piece from the Paul McCobb Planner Group (now that I have researched McCobb and know what I am looking for!) in the musty basement of a Madeira two story. One quick transaction later, that credenza, with the original black finish, is now on another wall of our game room, facing our original furniture. How’s that for karma?
