While looking through Craigslist awhile back I found this great Birds Eye Maple dresser and snatched it up.
It was in pretty good shape and just needed to be cleaned, waxed and have the top attached again. I did all those things and it is a beauty!
I bought the dresser from an older lady who was moving and she told me the story behind it. I love getting the story! Her husband ( who had since died) bought the dresser and it was painted in blue paint. He took the time to remove all the blue paint, stain and seal it. When you open the drawers you can still see a little of the blue. She said they had it in their guest bedroom and it was well loved. She was sad to see it go since her husband had re-fiished it and had loved it, but she could not take it to her new smaller home. I thanked her for telling me the story and told her I would try to find a good home where it would be loved again.
