Handsome Empire Dresser in Artissimo

Artissimo Empire 1 - EC

Oh my goodness. When I saw this dresser posted on Craigslist, I fell in love quickly! Such a stately and handsome dresser and the mirror was spectacular. I made an offer a bit lower than the asking price and sent it of hoping for the best. I always stay within my specified furniture budget when shopping for pieces and I rarely allow myself to go above and beyond so often that means I make … [Read more...]

Cottage Dresser in Arles

arles 1 - EC

I spotted this adorable little dresser on a Facebook sale site and I was immediately drawn in. She was so perfectly cute and the wood was in such nice shape. I had her delivered without having gone to check her out first which is always risky, but I was not disappointed.

Pure White Pretty

I bought the prettiest dresser the other week from a furniture friend of mine. I was happy to find her! The chest was pretty when I got her, but needed some OOMPH. She was solid with great lines and ample storage, but she was BORING. Blah.| She needed some personality! But my heart always goes pitter patter for Depression-Era pieces like this... I wanted to keep her simple ... elegant. I … [Read more...]
