Drexel Mahogany Dresser

When I moved into my condo I needed a new dresser. But I didn’t just want to go out to Target or Ikea and get one. I also didn’t want just a dresser. I wanted an antique dresser.

I fell in love with Drexel Mahogany furniture. I already had a nightstand/side table and I kept seeing these around on Craigslist and OfferUp.

There were various ones but I fell in love with this one:

It was about $250+tax+shipping. But I had to think about it since it was so expensive. I waited about a week and they had a 20% off sale. So I got it! It was $252.20 after everything.

I love it. It is super solid and made so well. It truly is like “they don’t make them like they used to.”

Here it is after I got it home. It has been moved since the photo was taken.

I really can’t get over how much I love my antique pieces in my house.

One of my friends told me I was like an addict jonesing for furniture. “Got any more of those antiques?!”

    • I don’t know when it was made. I couldn’t find any stamps or papers for it. I assume it was the 40’s or 50’s. I will do more research if I can. Surprisingly I can’t find a Wiki on Drexel furniture.
