As a result of this post I want to look for a taller dresser for my son’s room.
In the past week or so I’ve started thinking about a mirrored one.
This piece from Pier 1 might be an option. I really want one that has five drawers, though, and is a little taller.
I know that I would love to have a mirrored dresser in this room (remember it doubles as a guest room sometimes, so I want classic style as well as teenage boy in there). The question is, what would a teenage boy think of it? And would he break it? (think lacrosse balls…)
Realistically, if I can find something used I’ll do that first. We’ve got a half dozen or more items above this purchase on our priority list. We’ll see what happens. His birthday is early in June and I would really like to have his room looking great before that. He’s had a tough year.
On a similar note, I had a few minutes to spare while waiting in the car recently, and I sketched out plans for all the bedrooms I’m trying to pull together for my kiddos. It was a lot of fun. I sketched them in the notebook I keep in my purse and it’s been helpful to have it done. When I’ve had new ideas I’ve been able to add them, and when I ‘ve seen things that I like it’s been easy to glance at the sketches, decide if it’s what I really want, close the notebook, and move on. I feel like having that plan in drawing form is helping me make good financial decisions and keep my eye on the money I’m saving for what I really want. I guess I’m learning some of the benefits of having the design sketched out. No wonder all the professionals do it!
I hope your weekend is wonderful.
