A dramatic transformation

Okay so maybe it isn’t all that dramatic, but I am seriously super excited about my new purchase. 

My bedroom has had a piece of furniture in it that I have had since I was probably seven:

room redo 008

It is a nice piece and we are using it in our guest bedroom now, but Tommy and I were sharing it, so we needed more space. Also, my wall in my bedroom is really long, so it could accommodate something larger.

We have an amazing woodworker that is a family friend that did tons of work in our old house (refacing our cabinets, building new cabinets, crown molding, etc.) and I called him up to see if he could create us something new for our bedroom.

We designed it together and I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome. I love it!

There is still a shelf we need to install and clean up the cords, but I do really love it. It is so nice to have space for my clothes (and Tommy’s)!

So, what do you guys think – hardware or no hardware?  I could go either way...

I LOVE it! I think it could go either way, too! I mean, you could always put hardware on some of it, but not all of it? #compromise haha... ;) What a cool piece of furniture!

This looks amazing! You definitely have some fantastic storage in this piece. I think hardware would look nice, but it also looks great as is. I know...that wasn't much help. :)

Your carpenter/woodworker is fantastic!!! That is gorgeous!! I like the clean look without hardware, but don't you need it to make it easier to get into the drawers and cabinets? Great job, Katie!!
Love, Aunt Angie

i vote hardware on the doors. See how that looks. Don't know if you need it on the drawers. I thinki it needs something to dress it up a little. Give it a little punch. mom

That is a beautiful piece of furniture! I would love to have something like that in a bedroom.

I think hardware would be a great addition.
