I prefer old furniture, my flat pack days are over, Ikea fills me with horror (aside from the fabulous assortment of herrings, the meatballs and Daim bars) As I generally fail to grasp the concept of fit screw B in fitting A, I buy my furniture ready made. Charity shops are great for this, there is one opposite the shop that has had some gems. I purchased these bedside drawers at the weekend, it's a fine line between fabulous and not so sometimes and I can't quite decide if they work. It doesn't help that they are actually quite low, and me being a princess and all, my bed is very high, they do however have the most charming Bakelite handles.
Whilst I mull it over they are sitting in the shop window.
