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.
