When you have more clothes than will fit in your two dressers, walk in-closet, and the drawers of your nightstand, what's a girl to do? Get some under-the-bed storage! :)
These roller ball bearings were one of those impulse buys while Neighbor Grandpa and I were browsing the isles of our brand new Harbor Freight Tools. They seemed like a good price, and I was sure I would need them somewhere...
Yes, I really did use thumb tacks from the dollar store to hold these in place. I was afriad screws would crack the already brittle wood on these antique drawers. I added one to each corner of the drawer and wa-la! Marvelous! Oh, I also had to add some white drawer pulls to the fronts since they were MIA. I happened to have four matching that I found in a garage sale box for fifty cents (woot woot), but only two were white. Out came the spray paint.
I'm thinking they look meant to be! Not only that, but they hide some ugly luggage that was being stored under the bed that was otherwise visible upon entering our room. Not cool, yo.
Here is the dresser these were originally form. I didn't even paint them!
And why didn't I want the drawers for the dresser? Well have a look-see, it's our "media" station in the den:
Yes, that's a record player. Bought at the same garage sale (my sweet friend, Esther's) that I got the dresser from.

The one on the left holds all my tights, leg warmers, leggings, and belts.
Yes, I said leg warmers.
