Object of Lust: Alphabet Chest

This Alphabet Chest of Drawers from the U.K.'s Kent and London had me at hello. But the price -- £2,700, or about $4,335 -- had me choking on my coffee.

I wonder if you couldn't make a mini version by affixing some vintage letterpress blocks (there are tons up for grabs on eBay, for instance) to a set of inexpensive cubby drawers, like the Fira Chest from IKEA. It's an idea, anyway ...

This post was cruel. Seeing the chest of drawers and then the price. WHY DO YOU DO THESE THINGS.

I do like where you're going with the making of one. I think it would be cooler to scramble up the letters and maybe use number and punctuation blocks too. Different fonts?

I have that very ikea drawer set - I think I might just peel off the tape-and-sharpie labels and try the letterpress idea! Still, the expensive one is way cuter...
