When I first moved to the city, I took very little with me from my previous home, as it had a very different feel. So, when this dresser came with my apartment, I though it was very functional and free! It took me about 1 day of having it there before I HAD to change it. Unbelievably, the drab berber carpet stayed another year before I ripped it up! It is funny what a "dark" phase I was going through... maybe because I still had some more traditional pieces leftover, I just cannot believe this was me a few years ago!
