These dressers have found a new home and are SOLD. Weren’t they beautiful thought?!
I have been on the search for dressers that I could rehab on Craigslist for a while now. I really loved the transformation Homey Oh My! did to the Ikea Malm Dresser. I have looked a lot for the Malm dresser on Craigslist but they are few and far between. I think a lot of people like to rehab them so they are hard to find. I talked with my husband about this and he refuses to let me buy the dressers because he’s tired of pressboard furniture. We have moved many times and have had many things break in the process because pressboard just doesn’t hold up.
My mom was in town about a month ago and we were searching Craigslist non stop to find the perfect dressers, couches, futons etc. As I have said before we had family come into town for Thanksgiving so we wanted to get furniture for our basement on an affordable budget. I think every night my husband and I were out picking up furniture while my mom stayed home with the baby. We were able to score a futon and a couch for the basement for $100. We were pretty stoked about that!
My mom came across this listing on craigslist for two dressers and it was kind of an estate sale situation. It looked like they were a solid piece of furniture and had similar lines to the Ikea Malm Dresser. The guy said to email him and name your price. I wrote the guy and he accepted my offer so the next day my husband and I went to pick them up. We barely were able to fit them into my small SUV but we made it happen. We got them home and I cleaned them up and they were the perfect size for our bedroom. I couldn’t wait to start refinishing them but Thanksgiving was only a few days away so I figured I would wait until after the Holiday.
Here are three of my favorite designs I was contemplating between:
Thank goodness Thanksgiving was only a few days away because I finally found the brand on the dressers and they are original Conant Ball Stamped Furniture. I started doing research and realized they are worth something – approximately $1000 per dresser! I definitely can’t paint over a beautiful antique! I would LOVE to keep these but right now the best thing to do for our family is to sell them.
So long story short….I have two original Conant Ball dressers for sale! I really hate to sell them as they are absolutely perfect for our home but I feel they need to go to someone who can appreciate them and take good care of them. I have a child and would hate for something to happen to them!
Details are below and please email me for more information or how to buy them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Two original stamped Conant Ball dressers. They are in excellent condition minus a few marks from normal wear and tear. One drawer has a paint stain inside of the drawer. I tried to show all of the marks on the two dressers in the pictures. Beautiful dressers in excellent condition! $1,000 for both dressers.
