I recently decided it was time for a new dresser. I knew exactly what I wanted, but just couldn't find it. Clean lines, a lot of storage, cream.
So after a trip to Canada (to Ikea), a custom's agent said 'you know you have to put that together yourself...' (duh), a haul up to my room that made my muscles (still) hurt and 2 hours of labor (thanks to my sister and Jack) I have my new dresser.
It's the Hemnes 8 drawer and I love it. Since the matching armoir wouldn't fit in my car I'll be getting that another time, with the help of a friend's minivan (they do indeed come in handy, despite the stigma).
And see that sweet black and white striped throw in the corner of the second picture? Ikea. I know.
