Lookie what I brought home last weekend…
I spotted this little cutie at a local antique mall for $80. It’s certainly not cheap, but compared to some of the prices I’ve been seeing on Craigslist and at stores in the area, I think it’s a fair price. I’ve been looking for a few small dressers for the new house, so it caught my eye immediately.
The wood isn’t in horrible shape, but it has a tiger stripe treatment which isn’t our style, so I’m thinking paint will come to the rescue. And the style is pretty close to one of my inspiration images. I love it when that happens.
I’m thinking it will probably live in the dining room. So maybe it will turn yellow, to play off the curtains?
Or maybe grey? Or white? Or black? I don’t know, we’ll see. I have a few things to do before worrying about decorating, but I’m excited about the new piece. It’s been a while since I’ve painted furniture, so I’m itching to get started.
