All month I’ve been purging for summer. This month I’m on a no sugar cleanser only eating fruit and nuts. While purging my body I decided to do the same to my apartment starting with my room. I have been bleaching, dusting and trashing everything in sight. Like my body I like my surrounding to minimal. After posting a pic of my bedroom I got a hefty amount of responses inquiring about my shelves.
When decorating my room I went shopping for a dresser. As you may know a nice dresser is pretty expensive and I am the first to admit I’m cheap. I couldn’t imagine paying over 100 bucks to only store my underwear. As well as I just seen buying a dresser set as an unimaginative way of decorating, I mean everyone goes out and buy a matching bedroom set.
When I’m not delirious from food deprecation I’m a crafter. I came up with the idea to make my own dressers. I bought 2 $15 bookshelves from Wal-Mart
along with 6 $4.99 wicker baskets from Gordmans of 3 different sizes. I stored my undies in the baskets, folded my shirts in a nice presentation and accessorized the top accordingly.
There you have it a slim, sleek and smart dresser.
I guess you can call this my “Anorexic Style DIY.”
