WHSmiths Nightingale Multi Drawer Set
Advantages: cute design, organised, nice range of sized drawers. good quality
Disadvantages: is cardboard (but very strong cardboard) so is unlikely to last foreverrrrrrr
My mum came back from WH Smith with one of these for me as I have a slight obsession with organising things into boxes and draws. The only difference is mine has a pattern of cupcakes on instead of this pink and black swirly pattern.
The draws cost my mum £10 but I think they are usually sold for £15. I think this is a fair price as the draws are very well made and creatively decorated. The box measures at 23h x 34w x 24d, it easily sits on any desk or table area and looks really fun too. The draw has 6 draws, three small ones on top, 2 larger in the middle and one large one on the bottom. Each draw 'handle' is a thick bit of soft ribbon which is easy to use.
These draws can be used for a number or uses, such as stationery, make up or jewelry but I use mine as an arts and craft box. The top draws are perfect for pens and pencils or glitter glue tubes. The next two draws I use one for types of glue like different sized glue sticks, double sided stickers and my glue gun and spare glue sticks for this. The other draw I use to hold pots of glitter which I have quite a few of. These middle draws are quite deep and could fit numerous items in. The bottom draw is the full size of the drawers and I use it for A4 bits of decorative card or magazine cuttings that I find interesting. These draws fit perfectly in my room as I own a few other cupcake themed items but are probably aimed at a younger target market. The draws featured in the picture I'm sure would be great for girly teenagers or stylish mums and would fit with décor that is very popular at the moment.
I really like my drawsw and find them easy to use. They are made of a very, very sturdy cardboard and are covered in the patterned paper very well. I have no worry of it breaking but I suggest not putting weighty items on top, as this can make the top droop a tiny bit and the bottom draw can poke out a little bit. I did this and as soon I noticed I took the item off the top and draw was okay. I am a bit of a neat freak and have kept my draws looking almost brand new with not too much care needed. If I were not using these draws for craft items I would definitely use it for storing make up as the top draws would be great for brushes, lipsticks or eyeliners and mascaras. The middle draw perfect for foundations and pots of makeup and then the bottom draw for powders, compacts and palettes!
The draws are definitely worth £15 for the space and quality that is offered, I would much prefer using this over plastic or wooden draws as plastic can sometimes look cheap and wooden ones are expensive and leave a woody smell over things. Mum bought me mine at £10 but I have often seen them on sale even cheaper in WHSmith at end of season sales.
Summary: Really helpful organised drawers set!
