Storage is a big issue in our tiny residence. When I starting pondering about this post and the purpose why issues adjust a lot about here, I wanted to research what essentially constitutes a “small dwelling”. The opinion varies. Some people today say 200-400 square Bernhardt feet, when other folks say something below 1000 square feet. I appreciate how Tiny Home Giant Journey place it: “We think it is as tiny as you are prepared to go to get monetary freedom with a small house footprint.” Our home is over 1000 square feet, but effectively under 2000 square feet and the rooms are modest. (You can study the post I wrote all about the one purpose we really like living in a smaller residence Here.) The storage in every area in minimal (at best) so I am always trying to come up with new techniques to generate more storage. That is one particular of the biggest reasons why issues modify around right here so generally. If I can discover (or DIY) a thing that will enable add storage, I do. Final year, we gave our daughter’s space a makeover. I discovered a mirrored dresser at a yard sale that I stripped and stained for her area. It worked for about sudbury upholstered bench a year and then we had been having a challenging time Bernhardt fitting all her garments in it. We had to come up with a better remedy for her clothing.
Here is the option.
Instagram, you know I discovered this mirrored dresser at Restore for 50% off.
Just like most of the pieces I rescue, it had some difficulties.
The drawer fronts were pretty worn.
The “painted-on mirror” on the leading door was peeling off.
It was also missing a knob and the trim was coming off on the major.
These had been all items I could look past sudbury upholstered bench for the reason that it had so a great deal additional storage for my daughter’s garments!
Someone had even completed all the function to add shelves in the right side sudbury upholstered bench of it. (Matt truly wanted to make these shelves “better” but I told him once sudbury upholstered bench it was filled with clothing, no a single will ever see them. Why make sudbury upholstered bench extra work Bernhardt when you don’t want to?) 🙂
Supply list for what I used on this DIY Mirrored Dresser Makeover:
Fusion Paint in “Heirloom”
Mercury Glass Knobs (you can locate similar ones right here)
“Heirloom” by Fusion Mineral Paint. My daughter truly picked out the colour. It is a pretty fairly blue.
My daughter is definitely a “mirror girl”. The a lot more mirrors the much better (I enjoy that about her). Since the proper side had a lengthy mirror, I decided to remove the peeling mirror on the left and add a piece of cork wrapped in burlap rather.

I scored the knobs on clearance on TJ Maxx. They have been a steal!
They only had two sets left. I nonetheless have a set of four to use on another piece.
Not only does Bernhardt our daughter like mirrors, but she loves all items shiny and sparkly so these knobs had been excellent for this mirrored dresser.
The dark wood came via beautifully when I sanded it. You can really see all the details this dresser has now.
I truly thought I was going to be hunting for a larger dresser for my daughter’s room. This mirrored dresser was such a improved match. It added more storage, takes up much less space and is a colour my daughter loves. It is fantastic…… for now. 🙂
If sudbury upholstered bench we could only tackle the loft she has been begging us for this simply…..
