My Ikea Hemnes dresser broke this week. It literally just started coming apart at the joints. I think with my lack of folding skills I need something a little more solid. Luckily I was able to fix it, though, I don't think it will hold forever. But I think I am okay with that because I have been over mine for awhile now. I have also been wanting to give myself a bedroom makeover (as you may remember from my numerous posts about it) and this might be the motivation I needed to finally do so. Right now I don't have the time to spend toiling over dresser decisions (you may also remember indecisiveness would be one of the three words that would accurately describe me - the other two are still up for debate) but I do think I want a more low profile dresser. The Hemnes one I have now is really tall, which I thought would be better for my not-so-big bedroom, but I am fairly certain I was wrong. It feels like it looming over me while I sleep (especially now that I know it's super unstable). What do you think? Is the longer, low profile dresser better for a smaller space?
The last two images are vintage pieces (I really like that little wooden/painted number). Searching for a great vintage piece might take a little extra time but it also might help to narrow down my list and thus make the process go faster for me. Additionally vintage pieces tend to made with wood throughout and those good old fashioned tongue and groove joints which is why they are still around - they last forever. Particle board and tiny wooden pegs are not the best method for something that takes a real beating, and by beating I mean blindly stuffing full and shoving closed. But I am really loving the not-vintage pieces as well. Good thing I am not a in rush to decide, it's not going to be easy.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I am still so very busy and am hoping this weekend will be productive enough to get me past the "totally overwhelmed with my to-do list" phase.
