Yep, I have a problem. Admitting it is the first step, right? I am a complete stalker at thrift stores now. Ever since finding my upholstered chair at Goodwill and my wood lounge chairs at the Mercer Island thrift store, I have the bug. And yesterday, I found another diamond in the rough.

I had seen this dresser at the store twice before and hadn’t bought it because…well…I didn’t need it. And truth be told, I still don’t. I told myself if it was there the third time I went by, that it would be mine. And it is. And it’s beautiful. And I love it. The drawers have dove-tail joints and the front is two-toned with gold inlay buttons. The top needs to be sanded and refinished. (Note to self:  really is time to buy a hand sander now.) There is a small mar on the top drawer and a little chink in the wood on the side, but other than that it is in perfect condition.

I justified the purchase by reminding my husband that he needed a dresser in our closet to get his various pieces of clothing off the floor in there. (I am not throwing stones. My clothes just pile up in other places, namely the thrift store chairs I have bought.) Alas, come to find out it’s too big for the closet.

It’s a Fashion Flow brand, with the tagline ‘America’s Smartest Furniture’. I haven’t been able to find out much about the brand. If you know anything about it, please let me know.

Now I just need to find a home for it in our home. I am sure I can make it happen. My next quest is a six or nine-drawer dresser for Maeve’s room. The tall five-drawer ones cannot nearly hold a teenage girl’s clothing collection. I am inspired by these two from Design Sponge and Young House Love. I particularly like they way they incorporated white into the refinish. If you live in our area and see one, please let me know!
