Chest / April 26, 2017 / Pierrette Segal
It is hard to go wrong with a piece of pine furniture. Check the workmanship whether it feels solid do the doors slide how you want them to? Do you think it will last five years ten years or does it feel cheap? As long as you feel you are getting your moneys worth for the furniture you can not go wrong. If it isn`t the piece you are looking for keep looking you will find the right one for you.
A wooden chest of drawers if made well can be reasonably expected to last hundreds of years. That sounds like a much better investment than buying something for half the price which will last for a much shorter time. A lot of the really cheap mass produced chests on the market can be expected to break in a few years or even in the same year if asked to hold a heavier load.
Consider Adding A Paper Liner To The Drawers - Chest of drawers typically contain an unfinished interior that can leave splinters and sawdust on your clothes over time. You can avoid this problem by using paper or cloth liners along the bottom and sides of the cabinet drawers. The paper liners are a fairly cheap safeguard.
