The chest has been in place in our master bedroom for a while now, but I was waiting to take photos until I got the art hung above it. You know me, the perfectionist procrastinator -- I wouldn't take photos without everything looking lovely, but I also was too lazy to hang the art in a timely fashion. Finally today it's ready for a close-up!
Isn't the arch lovely? And the carved corners? And the feet? And the hardware? It also came with the glass top, which was a bonus. Of course, being an antique piece, it does have some wear, but that's okay, because it's been loved!
The only negative thing about using antique furniture is that it's usually smaller in scale than new furniture, so it doesn't hold quite as much. Our old chest of drawers had one additional drawer, so I had to do some re-configuring.
Here's the old chest:
And the new (to me, anyway):
The old bedroom suite has now been completely replaced. Oh, and even better news -- the entire old bedroom suite sold on Craigslist last week. Woo-hoo! I think we'll spend the money on a new flat-screen TV for the bedroom, so we can get rid of our old clunky tube TV.
I'm getting closer to being ready to share photos of the whole bedroom together. I've been promising a master bedroom tour for a while now, but since I'm a perfectionist, I keep waiting to get just one more thing in place ... and then one more thing ... and so on. Yes, I even drive myself crazy. Imagine being my poor husband and son!
