Vintage Maple Dresser in Old White (SOLD)

Total sweetness.

This one is seriously so sweet, you guys.  It's simple but lovely, solid but charming.  It's feminine but sturdy (I could go on and on….).  ;-)  I really do love it.

A vintage dresser this size in Old White ALWAYS makes me think nursery, just because it's so perfectly suited to that purpose.  It's the exact height you'd need for a changing table, and it's the right depth too.  Not to mention all that awesome drawer space for sweet little baby clothes.  :-)

But… that's not the only thing this piece would be good for.  While I see it in a nursery, maybe you see it in your family room with a flatscreen on top?  Or in your foyer as an entryway piece?  Or in your little girl's bedroom?  Lots of ways this beauty could be used.  I took a few less nursery-y photos to give you another perspective on it.  :-)

This sweet piece was made by Kroehler Furniture, which is a great furniture maker that had its heyday in the 1960's.  It's solid rock maple, which means it's rock solid.  :-)  Built to stand the test of time, that's for sure.  Even the back is solid wood, a sure sign of a well-made piece. 

I've painted this dresser in Old White with a distressed finish and clear wax.  Even the original round wooden knobs got a makeover.  :-)  All 8 dovetailed drawers move in and out with ease.  This sweetie measures 48'' long x 34 1/2'' tall x 19 1/2'' deep and is priced at $440 (SOLD).

Is this the right piece for your nursery?  Or foyer/family room/little girl's room/etc etc etc?  :-)  Send me an email at and it can be yours!  (Delivery is available for an additional fee)
