closet storage

I stalked Craigs List for a couple of months, looking for the perfectly sized chest of drawers for my closet.   We have a walk in closet, but the organization of it wasn’t great.   I gave all the good spots to Brian, because he needs all the help he can get in keeping his clothes in the right spot. ( lol) 

My socks and undies were stored baskets in random spots and it was basically a giant mess.  I am a huge “hide it away” type of girl, so I knew I wanted drawers of some kind.



This dresser was listed for $60.  I offered $50, and the guy even delivered it to me.   AWESOME.   The laminate oak finish and gold-ish handles were not so awesome.

I primed it and painted it white, both with spray paint.   I’m not sure laminated spray paint finish will hold up for the long haul, but for now it looks fine.   I even spray painted the handles with ORB  (oil rubbed bronze)  At some point I may switch them out with some super cute, cheap knobs….


It fits in my little 2 foot space perfectly!   One drawer is still empty.   SHOCKING.


I found this strange little plate at an estate sale for 5 cents.   FIVE CENTS!   It has a little chip on the back, but that doesn’t bother me, and it’s perfect on top of my dresser for earrings and spare pocket change.

I LOVE it. I can't believe how nicely it fits in that space. Now you should come over and fix my terrible closet!
