Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

Grain Painted Pine Primitive Washstand

It wasn't until I pulled this out of a dark corner that I realized there was grain painting all over.  Measurements are 38" long,  39" tall at high point, and 20 1/2" deep. 

I found this on my Friday search in Perry County but the seller said it was from a friend's personal collection.  I brought it to the house and haven't cleaned it yet. 



Look closely; the back is dovetailed. 


Grain painted there also.
