Knotty Dresser

Don't be fooled. My camera is not fixed, nor do we have a way to download pictures to my computer. All in good time. In the meantime, I did remember that I had some pictures that I had not shared yet, and in the interest of keeping my promises, I need to share them. (As if any of you believe my internet promises. Have I even blogged about Martin's Cove yet? Although, I will. See, I can't stop the verbal commitments. It's a curse. And I really do have good intentions.) So back to current fulfillments. Remember these knobs? Well, we finally got the dresser to put them on.


I think it is amazing. The craftsmanship is superb, since we got it done by this guy. We even got him to sign the back. It is so lovely. I heart all the knots in the wood.


It is a quality piece that will last through generations. Not only is it beautiful, but it is functional. Look, these drawers come out all the way. I love that.


I have some fun plans to decorate the top, but I haven't gotten everything I need. But don't worry, when I get it all finished, I'll be sure to take pictures and put them on here. (Old habits die hard.)

You have inspired me. We have had an unfinished dresser for 8 years now and it is the most uninteresting piece of furniture in our house. I am going to stain it and give it cute knobs. Perfection.
So cute.
