Look what I purchased!
I purchased this cute small brass chest of drawers from Craigs List for $125. I love the Chinoiserie / Hollywood Regency look to it. Its currently sitting in my basement (the pictures above are from the Craigs List post) because I don't really have a place for it in my condo. I know, right? Purchasing furniture without a place to put it is kind of like hoarding. I'm sure if I wasn't so cheap I'd be a hoarder!
Anyway it was so pretty and sparkly and full of oriental brass goodness I couldn't pass it up. I think I'm at my limit of Chinoiserie furniture I can have in my condo. If I have more than one piece in a room in my small condo it'll start feeling like a bad theme instead of good Chinoiserie. This beauty will probably go live in the office / my son's bedroom or maybe replace the newish brass bar cart in the dining room. (I don't think I've shown you that yet). I think it's too big for the dining room though but will try it out to see. If all else fails I will turn around and sell it on eBay. (My pile of
furniture to sell on Craigs List or eBay is growing by the day. I really
need to stop purchasing and start selling!)
I'm still feeling under the weather and don't want to carry this bad boy up 3 flights of stairs and move furniture around to make it fit. I'll do that another day.
So what about you? Did you buy anything new this weekend?
