Over the years I have listened enviously to the stories of friends and other bloggers who score these amazing finds on Craigslist. I myself have never had much luck. Don’t get me wrong, I have sold a ton of things on Craigslist, but I had never bought anything. I have always chalked it up to the fact that I do not search Craigslist everyday or that my area just did not have good selection. That was until last week.
I have been in search of a bigger dresser for my bedroom. I had a small, vertical dresser that did not provide enough storage and did not fit my space well. I was looking for a low, horizontal eight drawer dresser. I had looked and looked and was almost about to compromise by getting an Ikea dresser and hacking it, when I found this vintage Henredon dresser.
It was $200 and came with two of the most amazing mirrors that I show below. It is so well-built and the drawers are sturdy and provide so much storage. I plan to immediately change out the hardware and possibly paint it down the road. So many other projects on the top of the list right now!
Here are the mirrors. They are vintage faux bamboo mirrors and I love them. As you can see below, similar mirrors start at about $200. I would have paid $200 for the mirrors alone. They were such a bonus to scoring the dresser. They are a tad boring for my taste so I plan to lacquer them a fun shiny color down the road.
