Well, where else would you put your funky socks?

Old side table commode

This little guy may have been left neglected in some basement for years, but it practically shouted out what it wanted to become when I saw it on the side of the road: “I want to be loved and I’ll even be a special set of drawers for your socks!”

I wonder if it knew I had an obsession with crazy socks that drives my all too understanding wife to question my taste in clothing.


  • Original Materials: Solid Maple Wood
  • Refinished With: Robyn’s Egg Blue Milk Paint for the drawer faces & Peach Furniture Paint for inside the drawers. The wood is coated with MinWax Dark Finishing Wax. The drawer handles have been replaced with brushed nickel knobs
  • Dimensions: W – 15″ (38cm), D – 13.75″ (35cm), H – 26″ (66cm)
  • Available to own: $225.00 (plus shipping and handling)

I couldn’t find any branding marks and the remnants of the old label was faded beyond recognition. It appears to be from the early half of the twentieth century, however the handles that I found on it don’t appear to be original either. They are cast brass in a craftsman style. It’s conceivable this little dresser is much older.

Despite it’s obvious state of  neglect, it was without water stains, dents, or chipping of any kind, and the inside of the drawers were clean and dry. Someone at some time loved this little guy and kept him healthy.

I think it would also make a fun and unique little side table with a crazy lamp on it to contrast the simple elegance of it.
