home progress: dresser found!

vintage dresser, bedroom update // smitten studiovintage dresser, bedroom update // smitten studiovintage dresser, bedroom update // smitten studiovintage dresser, bedroom update // smitten studiovintage dresser, bedroom update // smitten studioMy search for the perfect dresser ended with a big heeeeeell yes! Quality dressers are SO expensive and even not so great quality dressers usually cost more than I wanted to spend and when I find myself in that predicament (which I much too often do) I turned my search to vintage.

I started googling like a crazy person until I found this listing on craigslist and I swear I heard angels sing (well maybe not but I’m sure they were on the verge). We called the craigslister and it turned out that it was from a local vintage shop Sunbeam Vintage. Of course it wasn’t dirt cheap (we got it for $500) but still a lot less expensive then some of the new dressers I was looking at, and I like it EVEN better, so win win! The measurements were perfect, I LOVE the brass detailing and the little wicker inset on the top, and it is in beautiful shape, oh and can we talk about that woodgrain? (hello grogeous walnut!)

So that is all, an entire post dedicated to my new favorite tallboy (move over Rupe). As far as the rest of the bedroom… it is still empty! But hopefully we get to move in soon.
