Laundry Basket Dresser

Let this smart furniture help you in dealing with your home mess!
I’ve just started redecorating my mum’s foyer. All old-fashioned, dark, heavy closets are gone but now I have to face a pile of messy shoes that need some new space for storing. While I was looking for a nice chest of drawers for all the shoes and sandals I encountered an adorable Laundry Basket Dresser which will make a perfect furniture for the footwear.
