At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand pine furniture. One piece we often stock is the second hand pine chest. After doing some on line research we have discovered some useful information on how to choose the best second hand pine chest.
There are many different types of second hand pine chests available today. The best pine chest depends on the size, look and storage space you need in a room. A pine chest is also called a chest of drawers or a dresser and it’s available in different finishes, heights, widths and styles.
For rustic or country style décors, knotty, second hand pine chests are a good choice. They include the natural knots in the pine wood. Knot-less pine chests are smooth and don’t include the natural knots. Knot-less pine is often used to make a chest of drawers that is painted white or another colour. White chests can give a fresh look to a bedroom and are a good choice when the other furniture in the room such as the headboard isn’t in a wood tone.
Dark stained second hand pine furniture may be more difficult to find than lighter to medium stained pine chests, but it is available. A good option is to buy an unfinished pine chest and stain it yourself to match your other furniture as closely as possible. Unfinished second hand pine chests may also be painted in any colour and doing this may work especially well for a child’s room.
Tallboys, or tall second hand pine chests, may be a good choice for adults’ bedrooms. They make a good use of vertical space and are usually narrow enough to fit into corners. If your bedroom is small, this may be the ideal kind of pine chest to consider buying. Low-boys, or short pine chests, may have a mirror attached. Mirrors can give the illusion of a larger space, so pine dressers with mirrors can also be a great choice for small bedrooms.
If you need other bedroom furniture, you could consider buying a second hand pine chest as part of a bedroom set that includes pieces such as a headboard and night stands. Pine night stands are also sold separately and some look like mini chests as they consist of two drawers. Other pine night tables have one drawer and an open shelf area. Two low-boy pine chests with a board finished to match placed on top can create a desk or dressing table when a chair is added to the furniture.
