This is a very nice piece.
Anyone who knows me knows I love antiques. Road trips with me can be challenging when pressed for time because an “Antiques Ahead” sign advices of an upcoming mandatory stop.
Today I start a new project, I’ve got a new mission: I’d like to increase the appreciation of older wood pieces and the realization that they can be incorporated into any décor.
Recently I’ve seen too many before and after posts of great pieces where the after has it painted white. And so today with the cooperation of my favourite antique stores in the city I start a series of posts promoting beautiful wood pieces that can make warm additions to your home. Some can even sit next to an Ikea Billy bookcase.
Today’s post features a solid walnut dresser presented by Eric Haldorsen, Manager or Upper Canadian Artique, 1206 Bank Street, 613.247.0662
While I lived abroad one of things that I would say I missed about Canada was Monson Cleaners. Since my return I’ve used a couple of nearby dry cleaners for proximity’s sake. Then I’d pick up my cleaning and return home with the same stain and so I’ve decided to travel the extra distance. It truly is worth the detour to find your clothes perfectly clean and properly pressed. It’s a little more expensive (and I do mean little) but its money well spent. To me they really are the best!
