Few things say "cottage" like painted furniture. This sweet little dresser (the green isn't showing up right) was found in an antique mall this last Christmas. When my mom was visiting us, I took her to see it. I was saving my pennies for it and just wanted her opinion. She decided to gift me with it! I was a tad embarrassed that I'd shown it to her because my intentions weren't for her to buy it. Thank you, Mom! I love it and it is my favorite piece of furniture. She bought some glass knobs for it and I need to get a few more glass pulls before changing them out. I first put it in my office space, but now I'm enjoying it's new place in the living room. It's just the right size to be very versatile. It also has the old keyholes. I think I'd like to find a couple of little skeleton keys to tie on the front with a pretty ribbon or tassel.
I found the giant jack at HomeGoods this week. I've seen them elsewhere before and always passed them up, with regrets later. So when I saw this lonely one, I had to have it! Reminds me of when we'd play jacks in junior high on the girls' locker room floor. Great memory!peasy and cute!
