Change of Drawers

We are constantly trying to reshape and reorganize our home based on how we live
Although it may take a while to figure out the flow of our life, making a change makes things a LOT easier!
Case and point!
For the past SIX years we have had a child-sized desk in our home.
This desk was quite old....an antique even. 
And not only was it an antique, the desk was passed down from my husband's grandfather.
I used it for my scrapbooking table for a while.
But I have always complained that it was too small. I couldn't spread out my "ideas."
I could barely get my feet to fit underneath, and I am a pretty tiny gal!
This is the only photo I have - and you can't even see what it looked like! 
 
Since moving to Virginia, the desk has been used as a dumping ground for clothes.
After years of debating its real utility, the hubs woke up one morning and said "We HAVE to get rid of this thing!" 
I told him to sit on the decision for a few days to make sure there were no regrets. Letting go of something you have had your whole life is quite difficult. After two weeks, we finally took it to a nearby (awesome) furniture store and "sold" it to them at the cost of a new pair of jeans -for me, not my cheap husband ;)
We have since been looking for a Chest of Drawers...so instead of creating mountains of clothes that do not fit in our dresser, we can actually calm the chaos.
 
I recently came across a site that sells modern furniture with FREE SHIPPING!!!
The CSN site offers an array of furniture, storage options and accessories. 
I have to show you some of the options available in Chests for the bedroom!
What do you think of the Taylor Chest?
 
Then there is the Applewood Chest in Cappuccino!
There are so many wonderful options, that I truly cannot decide which would be the best fit with our bedroom current furniture. 
I do know that I am definately ready for a change of drawers!
Do you have things that you are holding on to that you don't really love?
Do you have places in your home that could be better utilized?
Please share!

Oh wow, both are so nice looking. I guess it just depends on what your other furniture looks like. I personally really enjoy the look of the second chest of drawers. To me it seems modern, yet classic.

I am trying to rearrange our house right now. I have been 'shopping' our house to see if a piece would work better in another place. I was on a dresser search a couple of months back, I found what I was looking for at a consignment shop. I love the two that you have picked out.

Thanks! I think we are closer to a decision! We found something in a store in town!
