Antique Chest of Drawers {Reggie}

Please allow me to introduce you to Reggie.

He's rich and sophisticated. He knows and embraces his assets and he highlights them naturally! He's sturdy and glides effortlessly on his beautiful roller feet.

He's every girl's dream.

So why do I call him Reggie? Well...when I was prepping this tall beauty, I found a letter carefully stowed under a drawer liner. The letter was to Reggie from a lady that had apparently made a romantic move on Reggie and was apologizing if her actions had caused problems between Reggie and his wife. There wasn't a date on the letter, so I don't know exactly how old it was, but the fact that Reggie had kept the letter all these years was intriguing. I love finding little nuggets like this inside the pieces I restore. 

Here are a few more pictures highlighting the beautiful wood grain, the new hardware and the birds eye maple drawers.

Thanks for looking at my guy Reggie!

Have a great Sunday!
