As promised here is a picture of my newly acquired piece of furniture from the lovely ladies at Frosted Furniture. It is an old dresser from the 1800's, painted a very soft blue. I love the mirror and all the detailing around it. It is now sitting in my dining room, and holds my tablecloths and special linens. I plan on looking for a very large glass vase which I can place on one side of the dresser,  and then seasonally switch up the contents. In the Fall, the vase could be filled with willow or large pine cones. At Christmas I could display glass ornaments in it.




I was told that the reason that it was so low to the ground, was because the ladies back in the day, would sit on a low stool in front of the dresser. The low stool enabled them to sit there comfortably with the dress bustle trailing down behind them. 

Even though the fashions of that time were beautiful, feminine and romantic, I am glad we don't have to dress like that today! Pin It
