My baby boy has a big boy dresser! Awhile back I shared that I was looking for mid century furniture for my youngest son’s room. My ultimate dream was Broyhill’s Brasilia.
However, it seems that the Brasilia is everyone’s “ultimate” right now. They’re hard to find, and they’re hard to find cheap. Besides, it might be a bit overdone (or getting there) so I thought I should keep an eye out of an equally fun dresser and bed.
I knew I wanted a chest of drawers as opposed to a long dresser. It will just work better in our space-challenged rooms. I also needed a twin bed, or at least a headboard.
Well, whadda ya know, I found it all this weekend while I was out pursuing vintage! And, I had Baby Boy with me, so I think he was good luck (or at least helped me get a better deal because he is so darn cute!).
Isn’t this great?! I love the legs and the top three drawers. The hardware is really groovy, too. And, it is in TERRIFIC condition!
Here’s a photo of the twin headboard. I love the way it angles out.
We are going to slowly transition Baby Boy’s room. We still have him in a crib, and we need to get his old dresser out and a set of bunk beds need to come out! (Know anyone interested in white bunks or dresser??!). After the old furniture is out, we’ll paint the room. I’m thinking grey, but really not sure yet. We’ll also get rid of the “baby” decor and bring in some “big boy” decor. You know, big boy for an under-two-year-old! Ahhhh – so much to think about!
Guess what is even more exciting than me finding the right pieces for the bedroom? How about getting the whole set and making the extra pieces available for purchase! Did I bait you? You’ll have to check in tomorrow to see!
So what do you think? As exciting and funky as Brasilia?
