one of the challenges and annoyances i've discovered as a renter is dealing with furniture. it's hard to find pieces that are versatile enough that will fit in the next space, and even worse, hard to keep furniture in good shape after it's been moved from apartment to apartment. inevitably, things get dinged up, and once nice looking chairs and tables start looking pretty grungy. nearly all the furniture we actually brought to houston suffered cosmetically and/ or structurally.
don't mind the messy boxes.
a closer look at the use of my drawers.
they're pretty deep, and hold quite a bit. the insert/divider is also from ikea.
the other cabinet.
here is a break down of the pieces/prices i purchased to complete the craft room, if you are interested in replicating any part of it:
vika amon tabletop 48 3/8" X 24 1/4"- 19.99
vika amon tabletop 59 3/8" X 30 1/8" - 39.99
vika curry legs (4) - 3.50
vika alex cabinet - 49.99
vika alex drawer unit - 79.99
jules swivel chair - 39.99*
antonius shelf (2) - 5.00
ekby jarpen (2) - 9.99 (not entirely sure about this one)
shelf bracket (8) - .50 (not found on ikea website)
effektiv cabinet frame -80.00
effektiv base legs - 40.00
effektiv doors - 65.00
peg board - about $20, all materials from home depot
total: approx 483.00, spending just a little more than the amount we made off of the furniture we sold before we moved.
*i think the price may have gone up on, i feel like i only paid $30 for it.
while some of the pieces i purchased are clearly not the highest of quality, they are certainly sufficient for apartment living!!
what does your dream craft room look like?
