Mission Accomplished. Maybe.
Nothing too big, as the room is pretty small. Nothing expensive, because... well, its a cabin.
I was on that assignment like white on rice. Seriously, the man actually asked me to go shopping... and for furniture! It was as if the heavens opened up and the angels burst into song.
A few days later, I stopped by one of my favorite thrift store haunts and found this neat little antique pine chest of drawers. It sat amongst the grungy sofas and laminate bookshelves so typical of such an establishment, just waiting to be rediscovered. My guess is the chest is pretty old; its made of solid wood, and the drawers lock with a skeleton key. It is not fancy or elaborate, but I took one look and fell in love with its spare simplicity.
There is one problem, however... it fits in my kitchen just perfectly, and sits there now, longing to be filled with vintage linens.
I may have to go shopping again.
