What's In The Back Of Frank Jr.? Why That Looks Like...Could It Be? More Broyhill Brasilia? Status: Really? REALLY???
I just (I mean JUST) passed the Brasilia Bedroom set to a new owner on Friday morning creating a little room in the garage. I was just kidding yesterday when I said I needed to fill it back up, but then this afternoon I was poking around lazily on craigslist.
Posted in the furniture this late morning was a "Free Table with 4 chairs and Buffet". Turns out it
was a BRASILIA dining set and not 4 chairs but 6! Ok...it's rough. But it's got good bones. It was
free..what do you expect. Actually, it was free but I offered and paid the "seller" $50. C'mon...I
couldn't take this for nuthin'. That's just bad karma!
I didn't realize until I got there and measured that the buffet was the LARGE buffet. It's much larger
than my buffet and the bottom of china cabinet (the same as the buffet). It was large enough to give
me pause concerning weather it would fit into Frank Jr. but with a little creative wiggling it slid right in
and the hatch was able to be closed. Sweet.
The only thing I couldn't fit inside Frank Jr. was the table top. It was easily fastened to the roof rack
with a couple of ratchet straps. I love roof racks and ratchet straps. They so save the day so often.
Even though all these pieces have not been treated with kit gloves in the past I still try my best to
keep them from accruing any further damage when I transport them. I always take plenty of packing
blankets and extra cardboard boxes for padding. Tools of the trade. Check back tomorrow for more!
