dresserbeforeHave you ever had a corner of your home that you just ignore and pretend it’s not there? Well, this dresser was that corner in my apartment. Sure it was functional, hey, it wasn’t even horrible to look at. In fact, since it was so-so it was almost harder to motivate myself to do something about it. I wasn’t terrified by how it looked and I could easily have left it this way.

But finally I decided that “good enough” wasn’t “good enough” anymore. By moving just a few pieces like the earring organizer and small dish to other parts of the closet and adding a flower print which I already had (but had never framed), the nook is totally transformed.

Do you have a not-so-nice-nook like this in your own home?

If so, see if you can do your own mini makeover with 5 minutes and $20. Send me a before and after shot to and I will post it here as well.

  1. It looks great (although your before picture wasn’t bad either!). I’m always looking for quick makeovers like this. My sewing nook was a 30 minute zero dollar makeover a couple weeks ago, but you’ve already seen the after picture.

    Uhh this is a good idea! Let me get back to you with make over (or under) magic!

    @ Rachel: I’m glad you like the redo, and you are right, your sewing nook is adorable :).

    @ Eva: I can’t wait to see your before and after!

    Found your blog a couple of weeks ago & still catching up (I like to go back & read from the beginning).

    I love the coral-shaped necklace holder – I’ve been looking for one just like it. Do you remember where you got it?
