A Dresser Update

Good Morning Everyone! I am beginning to count down the days until vacation. I am looking forward to being home and going to Florida. I am also hoping to get to Naples while we are there. I have always wanted to visit there. 

If you follow me on Instagram then you saw my recent photos of my dresser. I am so happy with my new piece! The photo above is the old dresser that we purchased a few months before we got married in 2003. It has served its purpose and we have moved it to our future guest bedroom. 

This is our new dresser. It's called the Charleston dresser and it is lovely! I had to wait an entire month before I could get it delivered. It has been selling like crazy! 

The first thing that I noticed about this dresser is that it stands taller. My old one you had to bend down to pick up items from it. So looks like they are designing these better!

I adore all of the compartments for storage! I forgot to show the other side of my dresser in my video. I have two necklace storage areas located on both sides of the dresser. 

This was the other side. 

I am using both of my side drawers as toiletry storage areas. It's nice to have those items stored away instead of having everything on your dresser. It has less clutter on it now. 

I now have a place for my heirloom items. 

I have room to look at my perfume collection. 

More space for freedom!

I am using my blue and white canister from the Library of Congress in D.C. as a place to hold my glitter puff. 

To live elegant every day is a dream. 

Even if it is just a simple dresser. I know that I will enjoy this for years to come. I hope that you all were able to view my YouTube video for this. If not you may see it below. 

Thanks for reading and watching!

  1. I hope you get to Naples! We honeymooned in Marco Island (30 minutes from Naples) and it was a dream.

    All the best,
