ONE MAN'S TRASH..........

The other day I had a delightful surprise at the dump,when I went to dispose of our garden cuttings.Across from where I was parked I noticed a wooden box in the wooden furniture skip . See here is the thing ,when you are a seasoned dumpster diver like me you know when you're on to something. Your heart starts racing,your breathing goes a little faster, eyes transfixed on object....I mean this box was tilted on it's side and upside down , But I KNEW, I KNEW I was on to something good! upon approaching it I realized just how much of a yummy little find it was, but recognizing the Dumpster rules-" Due to health and safety regulations(?) removal of any items from the dump is strictly prohibited" -I was out of that place like a little road runner!
Got home and SQUEALED with delight when a saw the sectioned draws........
Reminded me of these I saw at Barn house the other day......
I have no idea what age it is ,or what it was used for, but I'm getting some cheeky ideas for the dressing room.

A fabulous find for sure. But I am confused, the top two pics have dark wood drawers with white knobs. The third photo has, what looks like, patinaed paint and some sort of aged metal knobs. Are there 2 different sets of drawers??
