New Piece

You may recall that way back in August, on the girls' first day of kindergarten, Mike and I went on a little daytime date.  We did two of our favorite things:  eat and go to an antique store.  While shopping that day, we came across a dresser that we both fell in love with.  We loved the color (a cross between robin egg blue and sea foam green).  We loved the shape (the drawers are curved).  We loved the subtle flower details (well, I loved those.  not sure if Mike loved them.)  And it fit our need of more drawer storage.  But, we didn't buy it because we didn't want to make a spur of the moment purchase that we might regret later.

Well, weeks went by and we kept talking about that dresser.  It would look great against that wall.  I could store the girls' art supplies in some of the drawers.  We even went back a second time and measured it and then returned home to ponder it some more. 

A few more weeks went by and we finally made up our minds to go back and see if it was still for sale.  We did and to our surprise the price had been significantly reduced!  It was a sign!  So we bought it, brought it home and it fit perfectly in our home. 
Since this photo was taken we've hung a collage of photos over the dresser and it looks nice!
Here's a side view.  Can you see the flowers?

Right now we have linens, art supplies and photo albums stored in the drawers.  I love things that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional! 

Do you have a favorite piece of furniture in your house?
