Silverware/Silver Dresser

The last few weeks I’ve noticed my silverware drawer a bit empty.  I assumed it had something to do with that huge pile of unwashed dishes in my sink, but even after everything was cleaned up, there was still a major utensil shortage.  When I had my in-laws over last week I had to use plastic forks! 
Well, it appears my son Reef, 
my tree-climbing animal-loving busy-as-a-bee boy 
has been using spoons, knifes, forks, soup ladles, spatulas, etc. for worm and roly-poly searches, so . . .  happy to have any excuse to run out thrifting, I went shopping this week for silverware. 
D.I. (Deseret Industries) has huge bins full of funky mid-century, you name it .25 cent/each utensils, and if you know me, I don’t do matched.  I’m very eclectic even with silverware.  With five kids, this system has served me well.
While shopping, I found this little solid wood beauty.
I think all that silverware shopping finally caught up with me; I knew the dresser had to be silver.
Linking up to:  


  1. I think it looks very elegant. Great color.

  2. How fun! Love how it turned out! You can find some real gems in DI.

  3. The color works perfectly for your piece of furniture. It makes it very eye catching.
