WARDROBE! Lights, Camera, Action!

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

The 1930s were so romantic!  Looking fondly at the vintage 1930s wardrobe that we have just finished, I was wondering if Jean Harlow was going to walk down a winding staircase.....
What an amazing age of furniture!  So soft, easy on the eyes and the detailing just delish! ♥♥♥

Ikea has nothing on this style of furniture!  Solid wood construction, dove tailed drawers...The amazing deep drawer on the bottom for blue jean storage, a narrow drawer below the double doors for socks and undie storage.  Open the doors and you will find a hanging bar for children's clothes, suits or skirts with bars on the side for belts and scarves...Tons of storage!  Amazing detailing with original carvings....

So pretty done in distressed white, we have added rose garland drops and a pretty rose wreath to add to the romantic charm this piece already possessed.  Oh! The joy of repurposing such beautiful pieces of furniture!
