A dresser story

My dresser has been dying a slow death for the past few months. Peter has tightened the screws up a few times, but on Friday morning the top drawer finally gave in and the front came off completely. My underwear and tights and socks tumbled out.

Peter suggested that it might have finally broken because the contents of the drawer were too heavy.

Wrong answer, darling! My unmentionables are (obviously!) light as a feather.

Anyways, I'm trying to decide between (a) buying something very inexpensive to tide me over or (b) buying something I really like that is a bit more expensive.

I really like this dresser, pictured above - the pineapple in the center is so cute! It's sold by Rich, the same guy we purchased our dining room server from a few months ago. He is delightful to work with, and will deliver stuff right to your apartment for a small fee if you're in the NYC/NJ area. You can find all of his listings on Craigslist by searching: 9735255492. Highly recommended!


  1. That dresser is adorbs! What is Peter thinking suggesting the contents are too heavy? Silly man.

  2. That dresser is too cute! I'd have a hard time resisiting the urge to paint it white (I'm all about painting things white), but I think it's pretty just the way it is too! Get it!!!

  3. clearly nothing was too heavy! the dresser is definitely super cute - i say go with something that's always worth it in the end, and you won't have the sad experience of unmentionables on the floor!

    ps thanks for putting me on your 'reads' page - i've added you to my list also!

  4. Thanks for backing me up, Bryn!

    Melissa, I have to fight the urge to paint all my furniture white, too! Actually, most of it is already painted by now - who know how long this guy would last in his natural state!

    MBB, you are so welcome! You are one of my favorite new reads :)

  5. Julie, I came across your blog on google. Thanks for the nice write up :-) I'm glad you like the dresser and the server. I also have started a website in case you need anything in the future
