For instance, take a look at my dresser.
It fell apart just before Christmas, while I was rearranging things in my bedroom. That board that nails onto the back of the dresser is apparently a very important piece.
When mine fell off while I was lugging the dresser across the room, I thought it wouldn't be a big deal. However, when I went to put the drawers back in place they were all in a zig zag line. And then some kept falling off the tracks because the space was suddenly too wide. Who knew???
Anyway, a few months after that my mom gave me a hand me down from my sister. I put it in the porch, waiting for the weather to warm up so I could paint it. However, while transporting it to my house one of the drawers fell to the ground and snapped the side. The backs were already missing, but I thought I could easily fix that. I didn't look very closely and thought, no problem, I'll just glue the side back together while I'm at it. After buying everything I realized that the break was a little more serious than I thought and beyond my expertise (and energy).
And then a chance visit to the local Habitat for Humanity Restore changed my life. OK, well, maybe that's a little dramatic, but I seriously think the clouds parted, the light shone down, and the angels were singing. I found these adorable pulls hidden away in a corner of the store in the back room. (Yes, there's a back room that I had never noticed before. I'm going back today to see what else is back there that I missed.)
These pretty little things saved me so much work. I thought I was going to have to clean and paint the ugly leaf ones. But these ones fit great and I think they're perfect.
So, it's almost done, and all of my clothes will be put away and organized very, very soon (I can't tell you how excited I am). There's just one little thing. See those two top drawers? They have spots for single pole pulls and I just happen to have a basket full of awesome ones. So awesome, in fact, that I can't decide which ones to use. So take a look at everything and vote. I'll let you know next week which ones win and show you how it all looks together.

My bedding and furniture are white but the curtains and other accents are this colour:
Which pulls do you like? I can't find a poll widget that will work for me so just leave a comment below~
