But when you have a small house, the furniture has to fall into BOTH categories – useful and beautiful.
This dresser in my dining room falls into that category. It holds my sewing machine and sewing supplies, Isaac’s bibs, and Adam’s dress up clothes. And doubles as a buffet when necessary.
(notice the tulip bulbs we forced? Planted them at the same time, same depth, and it’s a mixture of bulbs from two different packages…so why is one side growing so. much. faster? As Nester says, it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful!)
**Updated pictures of the tulips and a how-to can be found here.**
Besides being useful and beautiful, furniture should also be appropriately sized. My couch is a terrible example of this. Although it has its redeeming qualities, the arms take up almost two feet of space.
But this sleek sectional offers plenty of seating and maximum use of space.
There is no doubt that this cabinet is beautiful and functional.
In a small bedroom, these space saving bunks are genius!
A bed with pull out drawers, play table that doubles as a coffee table, and a shelving unit that takes advantage of vertical space all make this small room work!
