European Cottage Dresser

I definitely have a soft spot for furniture with a cottage look.  This naturally worn, well-loved European dresser fits that spot.  The color is original; the patina perfect. 

Those over-the-years smoothed-to-the touch turned knobs are one of my favorites.  
Notice the knot holes peeking through the patina.

What's not to love about the curvy apron with a naturally chippy edge.

The chunky turned bun feet make the piece.

The back side shows its age.

I can't forget to mention the goat giclee resting on this piece.  I thought he was the perfect accessory for the cottage/country piece.  Notice how it's framed with webbing and nail head.  I'm stealing that idea.

Dresser and goat are up for grabs at our next Sweet Clover Barn sale.
