My hand-me-down dresser was the perfect size for our living room! And what better way to get my TV off an old coffee table and reorganize our entire entertainment area that so desperately needed it?

For single girls, this can be disheartening – they think about the chocolates and flowers they won’t be getting from a special someone.
