Feeling the pressure of our home study and inspection encroaching, I purchased a less-than-ideal dresser on craigslist a couple months ago.
What we wanted: a mid-century, not to wide, medium stained wood, changing-table-height dresser. Like this inspiration board picture:
What we got: a modern Target brand, dark reddish-brown wood, not too wide, a little too tall for changing table height dresser.
I had been searching craigslist, thrift stores and estate sales for months for the ideal dresser and hadn’t found it. On Sunday Jason suggested we stop by Pre-to-Post Modern, a retro and vintage store in Nashville, just for fun. There I discovered the perfect dresser. A mid-century, not to wide, medium stained wood, changing-table-height dresser.
Thank God, we resold the first dresser on craigslist in less than 24 hours for the same price we bought it for. And the new/old replacement was only $24 more.
Lucy approves. Or perhaps assumed I was taking pictures of her.
Great find! I’m jealous we don’t have cool shops like that in Erie 😦
Erie has some good thrift stores though! We always try to hit up one or two when we’re back in town.
We got one of our living room lamps from the salvation army store on peach street while we were visiting. It’s the cone shaped lamp you’ve probably seen in pictures.
