Project Organize: Dresser Top Clutter

in On Organizing and De-Cluttering

I took a hard look at our Master Bedroom…

The dresser top is a constant eyesore.

(My 6yo likes to “give” me stuffed animals.)

(She also gets upset if I try to “give” them back.)

But the stuff has been spilling over…

BEFORE:When we lived in Italy, we splurged and got ourselves some new bedroom furniture. New to us anyway — it’s actually very old, antique (sorry, redundant?) furniture originally from the Napoli region, over 100 years old with original Carrara marble tops. The Hubs uses the dresser, while I have a matching wardrobe. Which means I also use the dresser top. It’s a shame to cover it up like this!

AFTER:Much better! Just don’t look too closely at the pile next to the dresser. That’s some future Goodwill inventory that I will schlep out there (And a future Itch to Pitch post?). Very soon. Small moves, Ellie.

(And don’t worry about my daughter; the stuffed animals now perch very happily on my nightstand.)

I love the dresser! I am glad you got it cleaned off so everyone can see how beautiful it is! Now I am really hoping to go to Italy so we can get new furniture, lol!

I actually came across a really nice website that has a huge variety of Bedroom Furniture Stores with really good prices.
