Our organization has been lacking recently - trying to get our house more livable! Slowly, we've been making progress - when we renovated our closet, we got rid of A LOT clothing. It felt really good! I've saved money because I think more about what I'm buying, where I'll wear it, will it shrink, what can I wear it with, how often will I wear this?
Here's the before. I should have taken one with clothes - it was a mess - very cramped and disorganized. Shh! I would just throw things on the ground. We have the same amount of clothing rail, but the middle is now open!
Onto to my basement - it was FULL of my furniture
I did keep one dresser (I mean how could I not, bamboo, greek key pulls, teak - I've never seen anything like it) Passing on my finds did motivate me to pull it out of pile and work on it.
This dresser had ALOT going one - it definitely needs to be simplified. Pink marble top anyone?
The Greek Key pulls were included with the dresser.
I've started sanding - it had semi transparent stain on it.
Look at that bamboo detail!
Over the weekend, we visited Exotic Lumber and found a wood that was a close match to redo the center door - goodbye rattan and swirly detail hello simple and modern.
The pulls are solid brass (verse plated) Top is polished, bottom is unpolished.
We applied a clear sealer to one drawer, it's amazing how the wood turned so much deeper.
There are a few different woods on the dresser, so we're still deciding how to make it work, but I hope to keep it natural.
Doesn't it feel good to declutter!?
