I’m in love. Why oh why did someone drop this awesome vintage table off at the Goodwill store??? But I’m oh so glad they did. Score another one for me. I think it’s probably meant to be a foyer table, or even an end table, but I think it would make the perfect nightstand.

Jenny Lind dresser

I can’t even begin to tell you how long it took me to prep this piece and get it ready for paint. The former owner had slapped some kind of something or other all over it, in an attempt to refinish it, but then gave up and left it. By the time I got my hands on it, it had been sitting in a storage unit for years and years. Can you say yuck?!

But I love love love how this adorable little dresser turned out. It reminds me of a robin’s egg. It’s not too big, not too small, and could be used in so many different ways. Great for a boys or girls bedroom, a baby nursery, or even a TV stand. And how fabulous would this look by the front door, to stash all that stuff that needs to be stashed….hats, gloves, umbrellas. I was even thinking it might look great in my dining room as a buffet. What a great place to store my placemats, candles, etc!
