Up until now, I’ve been using an old Ikea bookshelf for storage and it was just looking rather blah and unorganized most of the time.
Though he looks pretty snazzy in the photo below, I can promise you it wasn’t always looking that neat day-to-day.
My quest for the perfect white and gold campaign dresser was unending.
I found a few options on Craigslist in the right style, but each one was either the wrong color (freshly painted lime green), or too short for the space.
But then one day a different lovely caught my eye…
Totally not a campaign dresser. But isn’t she pretty? (Feel free to ignore Franklin’s ear in the pic.)
We not only loved the dresser, we also loved Meg and her husband, Joe. We immediately hit it off and hung out three times within 48 hours of meeting each other.
The details on this dresser are amazing. Here’s a closer look at some of the pretty.
I’ve never seen corner detail like this before on one of these puppies.
And the hardware, delicate drawer moldings, and key hole detail are sweet.
(I have a feeling this may one day be one of the coolest changing tables ever.)
While I do realize this new dresser kinda tones down the whole “super prep” vibe I had going in the desk area…
… I’m kinda okay with that.
Yes, it’s a bit more eclectic in the writing room now. But really, I love every single piece in that room. So I’ve come to terms that it might look less “designed” than if there was more cohesion.
Whatevs. This room is a perfect reflection of my taste and I’m the one that has to sit in it most days, anyways.
Oh, and Franklin, too.
