Before and After: MCM Graphite Highboy

I’m excited to show you our newest piece.  This piece popped out at me during one of my weekly thrift store visits, first for its sleek midcentury lines, and second for its size and storage capabilities.

This midcentury dresser also reminded me so much of our past graphite highboy which I wrote about here.  This piece was one of our most popular dressers and we have received and continue to receive requests for a similar highboy style.

Although this new midcentury piece is slightly slimmer than our original graphite dresser, its vision is the same.  This piece offers two interior drawers behind the cabinet doors which I decided to leave in its original wood stain color to add some contrast to the piece and also keep its vintage style.

The bottom of this dresser offers three spacious drawers with room for tons of warm sweaters (it’s January here in Chicago).  The first of these drawers also offers drawer dividers.  Each drawer sports their original, freshly cleaned, retro drawer pulls.

This piece is a solid, quality midcentury piece.  We hope you love it!  You can find its listing here.  Stop by our shop to see more photos of this piece as well as our other available vintage finds.
