For the Utata This Is My Home project

I chose this photo because it shows a piece of furniture I found while I was playing in the shed at my grandmother's place when I was about eleven years old. It was nearly black, and had holes in the back where squirrels or animals had chewed on it. Still, I was fascinated with the little cabinets and drawers. I remember asking my grandmother if I could have it and she laughed and said "of course" Years later,after my grandmother passed away, the time came to remove things from the shed. I saw the old dresser and knew it had to go with me. I had it restored and many of my favorite things fill its heart.
