Space is at a premium in my 196 sq/ft apartment. Since I have a tendency to fill my dwelling with frivolous interior decor (clutter and knickknacks) even less real estate is available. In short, the cute-and-cozy aesthetic does have its draw backs, and sacrifices must be made. Forced with a difficult decision I often choose to eliminate the more sensible furniture pieces rather than lose my precious collectibles. But I recently hit a new low; rock bottom in pack-rat-ism. I chucked my dresser.
But not to worry! I didn't do so without having a backup plan. My clothes aren't hiding under the bed, or shelved in my closet (it's pretty cramped there, too). I opted for the slimmer, vertical storage possibilities of an antique filing cabinet like this.
My antique Weis filing cabinet with tshirts neatly folded.
The drawers are surprisingly deep and hold a great deal more than
you'd expect at first glance.
And now, with proper labels, I'll never forget where I put these...
Other filing cabinet-dresser styles come in various
compartmental arrangements, materials, and colors.
