The New Dresser

Here is a picture of my husband Tom embracing our new dresser. He sure likes it. He might like it a little too much. Every time he walks by it he touches the wood and says something about what a great piece of furniture it is. He says that he is looking forward to having a long relationship with this dresser.


"I think I might love our new dresser. It is really a quality piece of furniture. I'm happy, but I am also a little scared. Because when you love something you become terrified that you might lose it."

He made me take a picture of him hugging the dresser. And then he posed the dog in front of it and took a picture of that. Is this a common problem? Does it get worse with age?

I showed this posting to your dresser that you stained, sanded, put hardware on and it is now depressed sitting in the lower level of my house full of your belongings... I think it may be plotting against your new dresser...

You guys need to get out more. Seriously. I like the map with the red pointer for Honduras. My mom needs to see that. She's still confused how I can get to Costa Rica from Honduras by car or bus. I've been living here OVER A YEAR, MOM!

Hey guys - I've been looking for a dresser. Where did you guys find this one? Erin

There's a store just on the other side of El Sauce that sells used furniture, household goods, and other random things. I believe it's called something like Productos Usados Americanos. They'll re-finish furniture for you before you take it home.

To get there, go south on San Isidro just past Burger King, take a left at the Casino onto a dirt road, and it's about half a block on the left. M-F 9-5pm and Sat 9-12.

Good luck!

Thanks! I knew it would be closed today, but I wanted to go check it out to see if I could find it - and sure enough - I peeked through the front gate - looks like there are TONS of cool stuff! Thanks for the resource!
