Sean and I just had a pretty life-changing event: We bought a new dresser.
Hm, doesn't seem life-changing to you? Well, as you can see in the picture above, we were sharing one six-drawer dresser for all of our underwear, socks, exercise clothes, undershirts and swimsuits. It was a pretty desperate situation. The drawers wouldn't fully close. I literally lost a shirt in there that we found when we moved the dresser! It was not working at all.
I loved the dresser, a mid-century style teak Swedish number we got from Sean's parents, and wanted something complementary, so about three years ago I began hunting. For some reason, years of Craigslist, thrift store and antique shop stalking yielded few results that were affordable or weren't snapped up immediately. But THEN...
I saw this Bassett long six-drawer dresser on her site for $175 and literally bought it immediately after a quick call to Sean to get the OK. It holds everything the old dresser held and we still have one empty drawer to fight over! The old dresser shifted across the room, where it now holds a bunch of hair stuff and make-up and accessories.
My next project: I think I'm going to blow up a picture to go above the dresser. I'm thinking a picture from Ireland!
