Our House - Part V

This is our dining room; however, right now it's not functioning as that. You see, we have no dining room chairs!! There are two in the picture, but one is actually a rocking chair which has no home right now and the other was stolen from another room. I'd like to make this the music room by removing the table and bringing in the piano from the garage. But, shhhh, don't tell Hubby. He may not be too happy with that idea.Below is a close up of the buffet. It's origin is a mystery. When we married, I found it in the basement of Hubby's house; however, he has no idea where he got it or how long he'd had it. It cleaned up nicely and I love having the beauty of an antique.
This music box was a gift from his grandmother. She found it in her days as an antique dealer. It still plays beautifully (eight songs total). The two photos below show a close up of the song selection dial and the manufacturing information.
