chicago: mid-century modern dresser painted black

 

Chicago’s her name; the first dresser Jerry and I bought for our tiny little apartment so very close to the beach. We both miss the location; it was awesome to walk to Main Street on Saturday or Sunday morning for breakfast. We miss being able to walk to dinner too. Rather than being a half mile to the beach, we’re a whole mile, and probably closer to 2 miles to Main Street. It makes all the difference in the world. Maybe again, fingers crossed, but with more space.

I painted this dresser and nightstand white about 4 years ago. Looking back, I probably shouldn’t have painted it, but that was really before I belly flopped into vintage furniture rehab. Shay was desperate for storage space and the type of furniture that’s NOT put together using an alan wrench. Soooo, I painted it black and the drawer sides and interiors turquoise. After lolly gagging forever (mostly because I had tennis elbow for the last six + months) I finally finished it and sent it home with her on Christmas day.
