Recent Facebook Marketplace Finds

Do you shop for your home on Facebook Marketplace?  It’s become my go-to source for finding vintage items for my home!  Today, I thought I’d show you a few of the pieces that I’ve recently purchased from Facebook Marketplace with some before and after photos!

Dining Room with Vintage Dresser from Facebook Marketplace


First up, is this vintage dresser that you saw in the dining room on my summer home tour post.  I found this piece and a matching washstand for sale on Facebook Marketplace after searching for a few months for a vintage piece for the dining room.  I really needed some additional storage to store dining room linens and pillow covers.  And, when I saw this dresser, I fell in love with the curved front and the brass hardware!  Just look at those key holes!  

Here’s the Facebook Marketplace photo that caught my eye!  Now, you may wonder about the mirror!  I didn’t want the mirror, even though it was beautiful and in great condition.  So, I resold it on Facebook Marketplace!   I view this as a kind of bonus, since the sale covered some of the cost of the original purchase!  I painted the dresser using Benjamin Moore Nightfall in a matte finish, which is the same Gray/Black shade that I used in my Powder Room.

Cleaning brass hardware with Barkeeper's Friend

The brass hardware on the dresser was pretty dingy.  So, I gave it a good cleaning using Barkeeper’s Friend and an old toothbrush.  You can see how brown the hardware was before.  It took a little while, but it was so worth it!  Now, the pulls and fancy keyholes shine!

Vintage Brass Dresser Pulls

I mentioned earlier that the same seller had a matching washstand for sale.  So, I offered her a price for both pieces.  I wanted to use the washstand on my screened porch to store picnic serving pieces.  I don’t have the original before shot of the washstand, but it was in a similar condition to the dresser.  I’d say both pieces were in good shape overall, except for the tops.  The top surfaces of both pieces were stained and worn with some scratches.

Vintage Washstand Painted Magnolia Green

Here’s the after of the washstand.  I wanted to use a fun color, since it was being used on the porch and I stripped the finish off the top and left it natural.  The paint is Magnolia Home Magnolia Green and I think it’s a great vintage shade of green!  It reminds me of something my grandmother would have used on her screened porch!  The washstand was missing a knob for the bottom doors, and I picked up a small, cut glass knob at Hobby Lobby for about $5.

If you have hardware that needs to be cleaned we have found that you can put it in a crock pot on high with some dawn dish detergent. Once it has soaked for a few hours use steel wool( very fine)and it cleans right up without a lot of scrubbing. Just another option to try that we have found to be very easy and effective. We cleaned all of the hardware in our 120 year old house. Even paint came right off.

I love what you did with both pieces! The chest in your dining room looks so classic, and the green wash stand is such a fun piece for your porch!
