The Situation

There’s something very unsettling going on in my little apartment.

It looks something like this:

*Sigh*

I’ve been on the hunt for a dresser that can double as a TV stand, but I can’t find anything that is 55″+ and low enough and not a billion dollars.

And then – oh, then – I was walking through everyone’s secret favorite place, Pier One, and I found this:

Isn’t she beautiful? Couldn’t she easily be shorter and wider, with bins that are the perfect size for DVD’s? Couldn’t she not cost over $300?

I think it’s all possible, if I make it myself.

So I’m going to!

I started a little plan up:

  1. Source bins / bin sizes
  2. Draw diagram
  3. Talk it out
  4. Adjust diagram
  5. LearnĀ anything about building furniture
  6. Source wood on the cheap
  7. Build!

So, I’m on step one! I’ll keep you updated on what I learn – I’m going to guess this will not be just a weekend project for me.A. Rose (1)
