David's mum gave it to us when she was having a clear out and it's lived in most of the rooms in our house (and in my old room at my parents' room when we simply just didn't have room for it) since then. I was originally going to put it in Astrid's room, as the chest of drawers that I painted to go in Torin's old room was going to move in here with him (I've added a picture of the chest of drawers below as I don't think I've shown it to you before now).
However, as you can see from the first picture, the space between his bed and the cupboard in this room is quite narrow, and the other piece of furniture just wouldn't fit.
So, Astrid now has the turquoise chest in her bedroom and Torin has this one. I don't know whether to paint it or leave it as it is. I rather like the duffed up nature of the wood, I may change the handles though - what do you think?
Also, the reason I called this post "One man's junk . . ." is because a while ago in LivingEtc, I saw a chest of drawers similar to this one and it was selling for about £650! I thought I'd cut out the picture, but I've searched high and low for it and it seems to have disappeared. If any of you know what I'm talking about, I'd love to know where it was from so I can compare them again.
