So we currently have an Ikea dresser which has held up very well considering we bought it used. We have wanted to build ourselves some real wooden bedroom furniture,but for a while we didn’t know where we would be living or how much room we would have whenever we did get a house. So, now that we have a house, we still plan to build ourselves new bedroom furniture. However, our current set still functions very well, so we haven’t really gotten to that point since there are so many other things that are a higher priority for us. Our ikea set is made with particle board which has held up well, but the drawer bottoms are a cheap thin almost cardboard type material. So even though I don’t put super heavy stuff in it, over time it does tend to sag. So, we started looking up a way to fix it without having to get rid of the dresser. Some tutorials pretty much show building a new drawer and attached it to the existing face frame which would be doable,but just overkill for how much longer this dresser might actually last us.
Here are some of the fun updates that we have done around our condo to make it function better for us, and to make me happy…cause I’m crazy and certain things drive me crazy.
Grant and I have been making our own laundry detergent for the past 3 years now. We both really like it, and let me tell you, Grant is super picky about laundry detergent. We make one batch once a year and then slowly use it up. Below are the ingredients and instructions that you need to make it.
I have two house plants at the moment. I cannot say that I have a black thumb because my peace lily is a few years old now, and I haven’t killed it yet. Honestly, I am surprised I haven’t,but I’m not complaining since they are pretty hardy. It hasn’t died yet and has bloomed each year. I then branched out and got a Fiddleleaf Fig Tree FicusÂ that you see on all the blogs because they are just so pretty. I couldn’t find one ANYWHERE here. I called every nursery, home depot, and lowes to no avail, so I ended up buying it via Amazon.
