I love old junk salvage. Love it, love it love it. I don’t know what it is, but the thrill of finding an amazing cast off is the ultimate dopamine boost. It’s way way better than eating your feelings in chocolate ice cream – and not much can match that…  Sadly, pickings are slim in New York City in terms of reasonably priced salvage – but that doesn’t stop me from being constantly on the lookout for something amazing.

Not too long ago, we took a trip to Build It Green in Astoria to look for a powder room sink. The thing with Build It Green is that you never leave with the item you came looking for – but you will certainly find some random wonderful item that you can’t live without any longer. Case in point, this dresser.  I love everything about it, and I’m still haunted by the fact that I didn’t buy it.


We left without buying anything because sinks they had were not what we needed. The inventory changes frequently, and rest assured that if that dresser is still there next time, it will be coming home with me.
