Here's the room:
We have a new white duvet cover, but I don't want to put it on the bed until we are done renovating and rearranging. The bed frame, end tables and skinny mini lamps are from our old condo. Yes I know, we could definitely use some bigger lamps. The chandie was in the dining room when we bought the house, it used to be brass - I sprayed it out. The armoire will sit in the corner across from the bed, tucked against the wall with the window.
The criteria: prefer vintage over modern//solid wood, not veneer (well made)//rod at top with drawers at bottom (preferable)
and ...here are my options:
1 - Armoire/Wardrobe/Entertainment unit - $800 (Leslieville) - simple, $$$, matchy matchy
2- Wardrobe - $300 (Etobicoke) - this one feels like its been in the family for ages, I like that about it. Good price!...might be too "roco-poco" for my DH
3- Wardrobe For Sale - $100 (Derry & Bellshire) - Not the right wood tone, but the right price! Could I paint that brass bit? Plus new handles? do I want to take on another project right now? Is it REALLY solid wood?
4- bedroom set ( solid wood) - $480 (Unionville) - don't want the full set, would they break it up? Not the right wood tone either...5- Teak Armoire, mid century - $850 (Queen West) - $$$, gorgeous, will it be too orangey? and is that checkerboard veneer at the bottom?
6- 3 bedroom sets - $300 (thornhill) - need to break up the set...also need to paint it...I think it wants to be sky blue; There is also the possibility of just the dresser, for the study...(to hold etsy goods)
7- Armoire - $450 (Downtown Toronto) - this is a potential winner, but is it vintage? does it have drawers or shelves? Is it solid wood? What are the dimensions? So many questions...
