The little dresser……

Welcome to everyone who is coming over from The Lettered Cottage! I am  honored  to have my kitchen featured there today. You can see it here.
My super sweet, and extremely patient sister-in-law was nice enough to keep this little dresser in
 her garage for me for the last… um…. 6 years (sorry Jen!). I finally found  a place for it, and 
     now that she’s home, I can’t wait to give her a good scrub and nice new coat of paint!
Isn’t she lovely?  It’s the cutest thing, only about 3 feet tall, andhas a little secret too.
Can you guess? 

Look how the top drawer lifts up to become  a little writing desk!

 all those tiny drawers to stash secret things in.
 and  a pull out desk top as well.

 It even has the awesome original handles. I am thinking a pretty light grey or blue. What do you think?
I have some new things stocked in my Etsy store. This will be the last bit of stuff until my Spring collection release in March (which I am super excited about!). When it’s gone, it’s gone. 🙂 You can use the coupon code  Jen10 for a 10% discount through this Friday.

  1. Sooo adorable…I need to find more pieces like this (with secret storage) for all of the stuff I am accumulating with two little ones. Can’t wait to see what color you choose for paint…I think it would look lovely in blue or grey.

  2. Oh, Jen! That dresser is really unique. I have never seen anything like it, and I am sure you will make it even more beautiful!

  3. Oh that is a lovely desk just the way it is, but I’m sure you will make her just beautiful!
    I love, love, love your kitchen:)

  4. you have the coolest stuff stashed…like that green cubby thing and your grandpa’s workbench

    that is a seriously cool dresser…why don’t they make things like that anymore!!?

  5. Hi Jennifer…That is a wonderful desk! Can’t wait to see what you do with it! I look on craigslist and Ebay all the time – and every once in awhile I get a little gem like yours. I found a desk recently that I will be re-doing soon. Not as special as yours – but it’s pretty neat. I will share once it gets underway.

    Do you do a linky party every week – or was it just for the Superbowl (great idea – but I did watch ’cause I’m a NYer rooting for the Giants!)


    PS – I just joined your blog – looking forward to investigating all your great ideas! Check mine out as well. Thanks

  6. Love it! I did one like this for Kane last year…I thought it was just the most awesome idea!

    A light grey-blue would be fantastic, and I think they handles on it are pretty fantastic, too!


  7. Jen, This dresser is just so very neat with all the different things it hides. Why don’t they make cute things like this any more?Smiles, Susie (She Junks)

  8. I went to your Etsy items and I love the boot socks (crochet) and I’m showing them to my daughter when I get home!!! Very cute!! And I was curious about the boots, LOVE THEM!!! Could you tell me where you found them or what brand they are? Thanks so much!! LOVE your blog!! Happy Valentines Day!!!

  9. aww ive actually been looking for a roll top desk but this is amazing what price would you ask
