It's not what it is, it's how you use it!
A chest of drawers doesn't have to hold clothes. It can hold table linens, especially all the ones you use through the holidays! And then you can use the top as a place for cook books! A small cabinet can be your liquor cabinet and you can treat the top with polyurethane to protect it when you mix drinks. Baskets can be used for all sorts of things. Next to a chair it can be a place for the TV remotes and such. In the entry, it can hold all those mittens and gloves in the winter. Look at furniture with new eyes and see how you can utilize it other than how it was intended! Make if fit your needs!
