Small Apt – BIG Storage
I live in a very small 1 bedroom apartment. It is a 2 story house that has been divided into
3 apartments. The upstairs is a 2 bedroom apartment and the bottom is divided into 2 one
bedroom apartments. I live in one of the downstairs apartments. This place had everything
I was looking for in my new home. Being that it is very tiny I need to optimize every square
inch. I wanted a coffee table with drawers for storage for my office supplies. I found this great
piece at a thrift store. It is wider than I had imagined but works well for my purpose.
Of corse I had a vision as it just would not work as found. I struck a deal with the thrift store manager and brought it home. My vision,,,,,distressed white with blue undertones.
After removing the hardware I painted it with Dixie Belle ‘blueberry ‘chalk paint then topped it with Dixie Bell “Drop Cloth” Chalk Paint.
I put the original hardware back on as they fit my decorating style at the moment. I can always
change them as my style evolves.
The finished product is exactly what I wanted. The drawers are now filled with my office supplies
and I couldn’t be happier!! The beginnings of organization!!!
