Shabby Chic Saturday: Dresser Drawers

by - Saturday, July 09, 2011

I have always wanted a set of dresser drawers to match my bed and now I have one. Finally.

 It's so good to have coordinating bedroom furniture!

I love it!

Now I just need to find some pretty drawer liners to decorate with!

Moving bedrooms doesn't come without its troubles though. When I bought my bedroom furniture I had my doubts that it would all fit in the tiny room. My dad said he was sure that it would fit, so I stupidly went ahead and purchased the furniture.

Dresser drawers, a double bed and two bedside table in this room... seriously, what were we thinking?!

Of course the dresser drawers don't fit in my room. Dad suggested I sell them on ebay and of course I would hear none of it. When it comes to fitting things into small spaces whilst still making the space functional, I'm your woman. I am exceptionally skilled in this area.

I will admit I have a habit of wishing rooms are bigger than they actually are and I'm notorious for hoarding having way too many belongings but I simply will not compromise on space.

When I visualise how I want my room (can you tell I've moved houses way too much, maybe that's were I picked up this skill?) space doesn't defeat when I am determined.

Or maybe I just watch too many interior design shows. Well, I did also want to study interior decorating if I didn't get into education at university but we all know how well both of those dreams didn't come true. Yet.

Now I'm babbling.

I'm actually lucky I can get away with squishing a double bed and two bedside tables in my bedroom! So how did I get my drawers in as well? Seeing as I'm Chronically Creative, I came up with the ridiculous genius idea of ripping off my sliding wardrobe doors to fit it in my wardrobe.

But now I have no wardrobe doors and the now limited hanging space is hilariously stupid for a girl who has too many clothes a love of fashion.

Houston, we have a problem. You should see what it looks like now (I'll show you in another post), oh lordy it looks chaotic! I'll come up with some solution though. I always do.
