Living Room Reveal {Part 1}

I mentioned a few weeks ago, that I had worked on another creative storage solution for my place. I finally was able to take pictures of it, so I’m doing a little reveal today.

My bedroom closet is teeny tiny. Like small enough to only fit one season’s worth of clothes {i.e. fall/winter}. Since there was a whole other set of clothes for spring/summer that needed a home, I had to get creative.

My living room is basically one long room {I plan to show you more pictures later}. Because of the size, I really only had room to put one small couch in front of the tv. That left an awkward space behind it. So, instead of letting that space go to waste, I decided to put a dresser behind it to store all my remaining clothes and summer/spring shoes. Here it is in all its glory.

This back corner of my apartment hardly gets any sunlight, so these pictures are a little darker than I would like, but hopefully you are able to get the picture.

The dresser is actually a Habitat Restore project that I re-finished and I plan to blog all about the step by step tutorial of its transformation soon.

It’s the perfect size for the wall and the perfect size for storage. Fits all my remaining clothes perfectly. Now that it’s basically summer, I need to switch things around and put my winter clothes in it instead.

Refinished Dresser

You may recognize many of the accessories I used to decorate & style the top of the dresser with. The fan, books and bottle are all from my previous bookshelves in Nashville. The window is from my old bedroom. The bird print is actually from Emily Jones Design. I bought it when they were having a 50% off sale. Was waiting to find the right place to display it.

The two pieces of wood are actually candle holders that I bought at a little indie craft fair in Greenville before I moved down. I bought the lamp from Kohls and I made the little moss monogram ‘M.’

I love this little corner of the apartment and love that it’s one of the first things you see when you come inside. Plus, I love when you can make something pretty but also make it functional.

Are you using a dresser or another large piece of furniture in your home outside of your bedroom to store things?
