I’ve mentioned a few times that we’re redoing the guest room which wears two hats: it also serves as my oldest daughter’s room when she’s home from college (which is right now and through August!) Her closet has some built in drawers and a place to hang clothes but the room needed more storage for clothing, for both her and for guests in her absence.
I was ready to buy her a new one but then remembered I had a dresser that could work, one that was sitting in the studio and then in the corner of the garage, and one I picked up for $40 while thrifting a few years ago. I almost sold it, decided against it, and I’m glad I did because I saved myself several hundred bucks just repurposing it in this space.
The dresser has lived in various places over the years (you can see it here in the entry). I originally painted it a gray blue, but decided to go bolder this time and painted it a brighter Monaco blue to suit this space, and also to introduce a fun dose of color.
