In Which We Find a Dresser

Happy Wednesday, friends. I know I missed last week, but Wednesday came and I realized I didn't have anything to share with you all, but THIS week I have another apartment update!

One of the things that's been on hold has been my bedroom—I needed a dresser, and I didn't want to get my television all set up until I had one. Since moving is expensive and I have to get used to getting paid fortnightly instead of monthly, I haven't had furniture money on hand since my big Ikea order, and I was afraid that I'd have to keep waiting for a dresser. However, thanks to some dedicated Facebook checking, I found this guy just eighteen hours after he'd been put on the curb. 

It was a little bit of an adventure getting this thing back to my place. It's about half solid wood and half high-density composite, so it's definitely sturdy. I stacked the drawers in the back seat of my car and managed to walk the body of the dresser around to the trunk—it stuck out, but I didn't have too far to drive. Once I got it home, I gave it a wipe down with a microfiber rag and some cleaner, and now it's sitting nicely in its new home. 

I'd been debating where to put the bulk of my unicorn collection, but I think they look so good here! Once I was finished setting them up I realized it might have been smarter to wait until I'd found all the cords for the television, but here we are anyway. 

With the dresser acquired, my bedroom is just about done. I still need to clean up and organize some stuff and get my doll collection unpacked, but all the furniture is in place, and that's huge. 


  1. Congratulations! Clearly it was meant to be yours.

    1. That's what I kept telling myself as I went to see if it was still on the curb—"if it's still there, and the right size for the space, it's meant to be mine"
