Ever since I realized that we have a bun in the oven, I've been scouring craigslist, consignment shops, DI, yard sales and anywhere else that could possibly be housing the dresser/changing table of my dreams.
I'm a big fan of the European design style of combining modern furniture with older, almost country-style pieces. And since I'm loving the Amy Coe modern baby crib, I wanted to pair it (or something similar) with a used vintage-style dresser. Unfortunately, though, I haven't been able to find one. I had an idea in mind that I want a smaller dresser that sits up off the ground on legs and hopefully has some whimsical detail.
I think that this dresser obsession was started while I watched the Sex in the City movie. During the 2+ hours I stared at the big screen, I was not only completely engrossed in the girls' shenanigans, I was stopped mid-popcorn bite by the black and white striped dresser in little Lily's bedroom:
So imagine my surprise when we were in Price a few weeks ago and what did I spy just a mile down the road from my parents' home?
This little beauty.
My parents saw in my eyes (and heard in my shrieks) that it was the furniture piece I'd been dreaming of and they snapped it up quickly from the highway-side flea market (thanks, Mom and Dad!). My dad has already stripped it of its old paint and stain and discovered that it's actually an old television that has been transformed into a dresser that will soon be retrofitted into Mirando's changing table.
With a snappy new paint job and some fun knobs, maybe these or these? It's going to be the perfect addition to our nursery nook.
