I love finding old pieces of furniture and making it new again by slapping a coat of paint on it and adding new hardware. One piece of furniture you can do many things with is a old dresser. Just head to a local consignment shop, Goodwill, Craigslist or even your neighbor’s trash. That is actually the best place to find a dresser, because it’s free!
One way I want to use an old dresser for is as a TV Stand, I just haven’t found the right one. Other than a TV Stand or storing clothes a dresser can be used for many other things including kitchen storage, bar, kids toys and more….here are few of my favorites.

We entertain a lot outdoors and having a fun outdoor bar like this would be perfect. You could cover it in the summer with a grill cover and store it indoors in the off season.
Dresser sinks is a trend that has been around for awhile and if bought retail could cost a pretty penny. If you know a good plumber or you are handy then this would be a perfect DIY project.
