Never have I ever owned a nice piece of furniture. Until now. This blog is turning into quite the home decor blog. Sorry for being so one demential, I guess it is a desire for spring and new things. Heaven knows we aren’t getting that from the weather.
Back on track. Ever since I have lived on my own, I have gathered furniture. Most of it is from IKEA or hand-me-downs. I have a lot of the stuff I had in college, and I have added to it. When I moved into Camelot, the house where I lived in college, my mom and I went to Hess Furniture store and bought a dresser, a desk and some other sundries.
The furniture has moved with me since. This is the dresser we got. I am pretty sure it cost $50, it might have been $20. Pretty great.
I actually really like it. It is classic. There are 2 problems with it. #1. It is miniature. Sure, I love mini’s just as much as the next guy, probably more, but this was too small for function. #2. The drawers were falling apart.
This might have had something to do with problem #1. I may have stuffed them a bit too much.
My gracious cousins, Mary Welby and Bill, are downsizing and looking for homes for a lot of their furniture. I mentioned to Bill that I am looking for a dresser and his eyes lit up. They had been looking for someone to take Mary Welby’s father’s chest of drawers.
Problem solved. For both of us.
