I went to my first estate sale a few weeks ago and drug Craig with me--he says it was for the truck I still maintain it was for the company ;). Saw a few things I liked but most of it was too much $. Then on the way out saw this cute little dresser and the price was a steal! I was so excited! We took it to Craig's shop to fix the drawers and I happened to see the shipping label on the back. It said "Em Heins, Lyndhurst WI". Lyndhurst is very close to the little town Craig grew up in and so I asked him if he knew who it was. He called around and found that it belonged to the grandmother of a woman we know from church. What are the chances! She graciously let me paint it and is going to keep it in the family now. A sweet litte dresser with a happy ending. :)
Love the spindles
Still has the original wood casters
The top was still in pretty good shape--just needed a little sanding (ok, maybe a lot of sanding!). The original was pretty dark and you couldn't really see the wood grain, but she wanted a medium tone which really let the grain show. Very unique!
Orginal hardware--just needed cleaning. Love it!
