This is my new treasure I found today - nope not the cat - the settee. I love it!! The store keeper claims its Civil War era - but I dont know. It is forsure old however. neat hinges on the back so it can be made flat. It has been painted - years ago cause the paint is worn off on the arms - not faux worn but actual use worn.
Heres the back with the "bed" pulled out I need to make one cushion but thats no biggie so when it is made into a bed it needs 3 cushions.
Heres it pulled out into a bed. I love love love it Really fits with the house. And the best part I think I got a great deal at $199 I have it in front of the fireplace so I can just dream of the cold winter months laying on it in front of a warm toasty fire reading a good romance book.
Now if it really is as old as they were saying I hope no civil war soldiers so passed away on it! Dont want to haul any old ghosts home.
Anyone out there have any clues on its age??
