I’ve spent many years surfing the inter webs and searching through pages and pages of classifieds on Craigslist with little more than day dreams about what I’d like to put in my imaginary and very non-existent house. What’s the really exciting part of buying my own space? Why, getting to choose paint colors and accessories and… oh crap.. I actually need to buy furniture…
Never fear! Craigslist is here! Today was the first time I actually pursued a piece of furniture, bought it and brought it back to my parent’s home with the intention of putting it in MY home once I settle in June.
It all started with some Pinterest browsing. I have a whole board dedicated to my 1950′s Townhouse Renovation. I was happily adding practical ideas and pretty things when I saw this:
Perfect. Practical. Here is the solution to my kitchen dilemma.
Currently, I have next to no counter space. In an effort to maximize storage and prep space I began the search for something similar. I knew I wanted a vintage look. I need something with deep drawers or deep cabinets for storage. I also wanted to have the length of a typical counter.
I searched for a week and emailed a dozen listings until I heard back from my favorite.
Why, hello vintage dresser from Baltimore City.
This little beauty was only $30!!! It will be a perfect addition to my kitchen as soon as I spruce it up with some paint and put finishing touches on it.
