Loving : Antique Dressers w/ Round Wooden Knobs

I'm not sure if these have an official antique name (Georgian?). But lately I've been loving antique dressers with big round wooden knobs.

While I prefer the traditional wood stain, here is a painted version from Cottage Living:



This is not a dresser, but a similar style:

You know I'll be searching Craigslist for one!

  2. Oh, I have a dresser just like you've featured. My mom bought it for me at an antique shop about 18 years ago, so who knows how old it is. I love it.

  7. Love this Bryn! Especially that last image... it would look great as a bar cart (keep your eye out for one with turned legs like the last one for me) for a new barcart!

  8. Good EYE! I love a very tiny pull or one that is substantial. These totally fit the bill!

  9. Big knobs have been catching my eye lately too! I had planned to add them to the antique dresser I bought to use as my husband's bedside table but the piece is a little curvy and has a slightly french feel to it so I'm thinking that's just not going to work this time. Maybe the next piece though!
