Thrifted Chest of Drawers


For the past year or so I’ve managed to stay away from antique shops and thrift stores. It’s not that I don’t love them, but I realized I’d been buying things that I like in hopes of finding a place for them, rather than going in search of something I actually need.

As you are probably aware, shopping is definitely something I enjoy, so in order to declutter and streamline my home and life, I had to cut myself off for a bit.

Even though I’ve been avoiding said shops, I do follow one on Facebook. I always check out their weekly posts of new merchandise. Well, this week, this popped up on their page.

It was love at first sight. Although my clothes closet provides ample hanging storage, I’ve been yearning for a tad more drawer space. My bedroom also felt a bit bare, so I wanted one more fabulous piece to finish things off.

Needless to say (see the title of this post), I got the piece. It ended up costing $125 – a steal when compared with the $700 options I had been looking at over on West Elm.

Other than some minor scuffs, the piece is in excellent condition and the drawers function perfectly. I was initially concerned about the size and color of the piece based on the photo, but once I put it into my space, it took on a whole new life. A handsomely beautiful life if I do say so myself.

Before bringing it home, I also considered painting the frame white and leaving the drawers wood. However, after seeing its condition and getting it positioned, I like it in its original glory.

I quickly styled it with a few pieces I had. It looks good, but I think I can make it look even better.

I am thrilled that I found this and that my thrifting eye is still sharp. With this addition, all of my clothes will finally have a place, which I’m hoping will help me keep things tidy.

    i love it! So much better then the west elm one!! Did you clean it before you stored your clothes? And if so, what product(s) dud you use? I need to clean a dresser I bought from a thrift store and am afraid certain products will ruin the finish. Thanks!
