Remember the photo I’m using as inspiration for our master bedroom makeover?
Well, we found ourselves a black dresser last week!
It came from Eastbrook Flea Market and it’s the perfect size for the wall between the windows on my side of the bed. (Still have to hang the curtains on the window to the left of it. I’ll take a wider shot after we do! 🙂 )
The tag said it was made in the 1850s, and I did some research and found that to be an pretty accurate date range. How a 160-ish-year-old, handmade dresser (whose drawers still work perfectly) could be the same price as a similar-sized chest of drawers from IKEA just boggles my mind!
There’s no evidence of a mirror or anything ever being attached to the back, so I’m not sure if it has always been mirror-less, or if there was a freestanding mirror that came with it when it was originally made? Either way, I adore the twin glove/hankie drawers on the top (maybe I’ll add an arched piece of wood to connect them?), and I’m reeeally excited to accessorize the top and find the perfect piece to hang on the wall above it too. I’ve got a few things in mind, but I’d love to hear what you would put up there! Leave me a comment if you feel like sharing. 🙂 (Keep in mind, there will be a landscape painting above the bed’s headboard!)
