More Great Bedroom Furniture at The Salvation Army Thrift Store. Lane & Kroehler Dressers. Status: There when I left 10-21-10.
The Kroehler set has been at this store since I spotted the Brutalist set a few weeks ago. I'm kind of surprised it hasn't been snatched up yet. The other Lane set is a new arrival and I don't think it'll be there long!
I really dig the little metal legs on this set! I've never seen these in metal on
furniture other than office furnishings. It really sets this set off. The stain color
is nothing to write home about but there is a nice grain to the wood. It'd be a
fine candidate for refinish or paint. Somebody could buy this for their kid, paint
it white and tell them it's Ikea! Except it would like...last.
Yup, another Lane set. This has some dings and scrapes but nothing serious that
I noticed. Lane must have made about a million different lines over the years.
Luckily about half of those were Mod! Seriously, if I wasn't already in a relationship
with Broyhill Brasilia, I'd have brought this home with me. But you know how clingy
and jealous Bedroom Furniture can be...plus there just ain't no room in the
Garage! When I get back from New Orleans there is going to be a Major
Rearranging Undertaking. I think I could have found a new home for this set with
a little effort.
