My studio is one GIANT step closer to completion!!

Let me just say Pottery Barn is the bane of my existence. I hate that I love so many things they sell there, just like I love/hate Restoration Hardware. However, there's this one table a ton of ladies who enjoy the sewing pine for, me included:

Oh! What's up, PERFECTION?

It's unfair for PB to style their rooms so brilliantly. Luckily Lowe's sells ClosetMaid 9 Cube organizers which look exactly like the PB table. Bonus: they were on sale & I had a coupon! Originally, I planned to use MDF cut to the size, but a neighbor just happened to discard a better solution. Our bed frame, but in the dark brown we always wanted! I dismantled our bed, saved the headboard and foot board, and voilĂ , instant tabletop. It couldn't have worked out better and I'm being resourceful.


Another really lucky find were the Fira chests I bought from a guy on Craigslist over a year ago. He sold 5 unopened sets to me for $40! Ikea sold them for $20 each and now they're discontinued. When they're lined up like that, they totally look like a mini apothecary! I plan to make these adorable tables with the other two:

TOO CUTE FOR WORDS.
