We have always called a chest of drawers a dresser but no matter what they are called I love these multi-function pieces.
I have been searching for some affordable and sturdy chests/dressers to add to our home. The extra storage is always a good idea and I have been so inspired by photos of lovely displays. Gotta love more horizontal surfaces to play with!
It may see some white paint one day (or not) but I have too many projects on the go to start something new.
I borrowed a mirror from the guest room but I think it might be a bit too small. I will keep looking for one a bit bigger.
Looking in the mirror you can see the lamp beside the window that I borrowed the shade from (and the new white sheers that are now on the living room window.)
The accessories were gathered from around our home -an ironstone platter, a French bead pitcher with some drying hydrangeas, three little milk bottles, a bible with two ironstone butter pats and a special rosary.
At first I wasn't too sure about the pull style, but they are growing on me. I do love the simple side detail though.
I like when a piece of furniture can be be used in more than one spot or for different uses. For now I will use one drawer for candle storage and another to hold an afghan in progress.
Thanks so much for the comments on my previous post about painting our night tables and dresser black or white. After considering the opinions I am going to go with white with stained tops and new hardware. Our TV (hopefully soon a nice flat screen) sits on the long dresser so the black of the TV with a black or dark dresser might be too heavy. I hope to find an affordable tall five or six drawer chest for a nook to the right of the windows (for hubby) and I like the suggestions of painting this piece black or blue. I am preparing for a party for my husband's 50th birthday this weekend, but hopefully I can get started on the dresser sanding before the end of the month.
I'm sharing this thrifty find with...
