In 1982, we bought this chest of drawers in Greenville, South Carolina at an antique furniture store for $176. It was for our newborn baby boy.
My mother made the blue checked scarf on top out of the blue fabric I sewed for curtains. Oh how I remember folding his little clothes in the drawers.
When our son was two years old, I walked into his room and he had pulled out the drawers just enough so he could climb up the drawers and sit on top, dangling his legs!
My dear son grew to be a fine man and was working 350 miles away from us in Virginia when he mentioned that he was looking for a small dresser for his upstairs apartment. It was time to move it back to his room :-)
Many bloggers write about how they are downsizing at this time of their lives and how much better they feel after doing it! I was so happy giving this piece of furniture to my son.
When we took the chest of drawers to his home and he folded his clothes in the drawers, I felt my heart smile!
Everything has a story!
