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!!!
